...ever think about doing a bridge?

Here’s one where I live which could be a very nice candidate.

...one of our local landmarks.  Most who don’t live here only know about the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (the infamous Galloping Gertie). but the St John’s is true architectural gem which (IMO) outclasses even the Golden Gate in an aesthetic sense with it’s graceful Gothic lines.

Jack, you have to model this.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9c/Mackinac_Bridge.jpg <—- to me, this is a bridge

Problem with *such* a big prop is to try and think of what context they will be used in.  Do you keep it low-res, for the wide shots? or do you detail it so people could use it up close (like under the bridge, on the bridge).. do you mix it up and go for somewhere in the middle?

The model that I make then has to be able to be used in a surrounding environment.  Is there one suitable already available? do I have to make that as well? If you do, you’re not only creating a standalone prop but a whole surrounding set too.

It’s all these things which has to be considered before I start on big exterior pieces and often why they’re left on the shelf for the time being.

another issue with the big mac bridge is that its over 5 miles long… kinda tough to deal with in Poser scale lol

honestly i’d be more interested in a girder plate deck bridge, something that could be done modular style so you can make it any size needed, it would be a nice compliment to the parkside trains
