Wooden Suspension Bridge



At the moment I working on a Wooden Suspension Bridge for our 1930´s Very Moderate Swedish Conflict Club Project.

The inspiration I got when visiting my grand parents home villade Floda in Dalarna this summer. The Wooden Suspension Bridge in Floda was built in 1922.


My bridge project starten when my friend Oskar donated some parts of a 1/72 Airfix Pontoon Bridge to our project. 

I thought the railings resembled the Floda bridge so I just had to build me some Bridge towers and then will have me a small Wooden Suspension Bridge :)

  4. What an excellent looking bridge, it reminds me of old Roman bridges, with the cross strut handrails.
