Click on the scene pictured to the left to see a YouTube video of scenery tips that I used in scenicking the area by the Sheep Creek Bridge as shown in the pictures below













I’ve been working on the scene where the Sheep Creek Bridge is located near Essex, Montana

Extended the scenery into the aisle with a small bump out

More pictures to follow once the second bridge has been installed and the overall scene is completed

Making the Bents took me a couple of weeks ( 29 total bents)

Next came laying a section of the roof down on the template and gluing each bent to it

Once that was done I turned it over and glued the rest of the roof boards on which took hours. I then turned it upside-down again and glued on the sill plates and shims ( more hours )
