This footbridge was made from 29 separate printed parts glued together like a model kit and is ready for final painting

This is my attempt at a girder bridge with castellated beam (made from 30 separate printed parts) which did not turn out too bad.

A small hopper with outfeed conveyor.

This boathouse has working hinged doors and is made up of 5 separate printed parts, awaiting final painting.

The boathouse will eventually go onto my lake scene.
