I’ve got a side job building a bridge for another professional builder out of Tennessee. It’s plastic and I’m told its one of the best out there. I’m learning a lot. Mostly how not to design a bridge kit. This thing is a mess. There is no logic behind how it’s built, at least from the stand point of how to make something go together straight and strong.
Also all the flash and cleanup of parts as you remove them from the sprue. Some of the parts are so thin that I’ve snapped a couple during the clean up. Most of the box beams still need to be cut at specific angles. Why not mold them correctly in the first place. I was told 20 hrs to build this. More like a hundred.
I can’t wait to get back to cardstock.
