I came across this site when doing a online comparison of balsa wood and basswood (lime.) Some good information and techniques explained here

A good link if you need to build a load bearing truss bridge from scratch... or one that looks like it has been designed correctly.
Nice one Tim.

That's a great link Tim.

I can see me experimenting with a girder bridge for my "valley" section. Also, I wonder if Perry might treat us to another "how to do it" piece with all that information. :roll: :roll:

Sorry to disappoint you, Petermac, but I currently have no plans for any scratchbuilt bridges 'on the drawing board'. If things change, I'll let you know. :wink: :lol:

I have just clicked on the Model Bridge Design link and it seems that the site has been hacked by some maniac. Would someone care to try the link just to make sure it's not just me.

You're right Bob - there are some real nutters out there !!

It was a good link and one that I may well have consulted in the future. Maybe Tim has the url of the site.

This is the link behind Tim's url but it's no good because this chaps whole site has been hacked by the look of it.

How sad - why do such people (ie. hackers) exist :?:

I think the best thing to do is to avoid this site and wait and see if Garrett Bridges repair the site or regroup somewhere else.

How on earth do people take pleasure from doing things like this?

I'd like a few minutes alone with these sad puppies, just so I could gently explain the error of their ways to them. Then I could visit them in Hospital to make sure they really understood the error of their ways! :twisted:
