This 28mm scale model represents a section of a concrete flyover, overpass, free-way, or bridge. As with all our models this has highly textured surfaces. In this case the surface reflects rough cast concrete. In some places the surface has spoiled away to expose the aggregate and reinforcing bars. We’re not sure of the cause but perhaps the nuclear explosion 20km away or the recent HE gunfire had something to do with this?
The individual flyover piece is 290mm long and has walls either side, which are 20mm high on the inside, superbly suited to rest weapons on! Alternative column sets are available. The clear width of the bridge is 96mm and can accommodate our different road surfaces if required. However, the road surface already has a rough texture, which is highly suited to painting with a dry-brush technique. The overall width is 120mm.
The cast metal crash barrier models, which are available separately, can also be mounted on top of the parapet. Also part of this series, are columns, which are available separately, and are wide enough to support one end of 2 sections each so that: 3 are required to support 2 sections, 4 are required to support 3 sections etc...
There is also a ruined version of this model which we recommend is glued to these long sections. Better still would be to do this to two long sections and by supporting the bridge in the normal position (ie every 290mm) then the ruined sections can be cantilevered over a collapsed section of road or free-way.
As with our other buildings and sewers, this series of models is manufactured to a modular format. The advantage of our modular approach is that you have flexibility in how you lay them out or re-use them for alternative scenarios.
Prime the model first with a spray paint primer of black or dark grey. When painting , a dull overall coat of matt grey is recommended, then a light, diluted wash of black ink with a dry-brush of stone grey followed by an even lighter dry-brush of light grey. Where the flyover passes over a busy commuter route, anti-something slogans are highly recommended. Be aware though, that getting your message across can be quite difficult whilst painting upside-down and on the wrong side of the law!
Any figures, columns, trucks or other models in the photos are not included but may be avialable seperately.
