Continuing with the series to discuss the contest models at the past NMRA convention, I'd like to highlight one of the large bridge models that was, I believe, an award winner.
This is a large lift bridge, that was modeled very faithfully from the prototype, including prototype drawings and photos that the modeler personally shot with the assistance of the railroad that owns the bridge.
Modeled in HO scale, the entire structure was over 5 feet long.
We will start with an overview shot and move around the model from there.
A stunning amount of detail in one of the towers.
More pictures are available in the NMRA 2014 gallery on the main site.
