Playing Bridge

I forgot about this purchase from Birmingham on Sunday.  Lovingly described by it's vendor as 'some plastic crap in a box', this pair of bridges looks useful for bodging into something Baileyesque for Little Cold Wars.
Here is one of the bridges assembled and successfully bearing the weight of a 1/43 scale T-55.

The (plastic) 1/35 Panzer II was even less of a challenge.  Expect to see more of these bridges once the bodging begins!

I like! Terrible colour however.

That's rather nice...it's bigger than it looks on the box! I vaguely recall a wind-up or battery-operated big-wheel Jeep thing, this might be from the range of. We had a whole colony, for our crown? Seems a tad excessive...couple of Plods and a sturdy trunk would have sufficed, surely?

I think a repaint may well be on the cards....

Going by the pictures on the box the bridge is the most useful thing in the range.

I kinda like the colour....Looks very 'Forth Road Bridge'! - Only you don't have to keep painting yours! ;)

Nice find!

I haven't even begun painting it yet - it may require some cutting about first.

I'd never seen one before - and don't expect to find another!

I thought our description could not be contested by trading standards.

You managed my expectations splendidly!
