I think I am gonna have to invest in some of those Skyshield pylons. Nice use of technobridge :D It is one of my favorite terrain kits. Super detailed and easy to assemble.

Once again as always nice job great finish to the edge of the board, have to agree nice use of the landing pad legs work really well I was not that fond of the kit but might have to get hold of one for something similar now. well keep the hard work going real inspiration thanks for sharing..................

I like this a lot.
Reminds me of Charles Bridge in Prague

Here's a diagram of how the bridge will be placed at the end of the table.
I plan to use PVC pipe, 2" foam, hardboard and acrylic resin tinted green to achieve a realistic effect of the bridge pylons submerged in nasty murky water.
I also plan to add lots of floating debris in the water similar to how I made the algae in my Imperial Fountain located here:http://z11.invisionfree.com/Work_In_Progre...showtopic=15369

Another great idea. You always see bridges in the center of the table, I never thought of one on the end like this.
I like the diagram, but I don't think I follow your thought process with the sheet styrene below the "murk". The hardboard, once painted, will not absorb any resin. neither will the styrofoam. please educate me! :scratch: Will you be embedding the styrene from the bottom of the board?
Thanks for your time, keep up the great work!

To answer the styrene question, here's what I plan to do.
Even though the hardboard and the styrofoam will be painted and sealed, clear resin can be a tricky substance. It will crawl into any open hole it has and then spread throughout.
My plan is to create a large thin styrene box for the whole end of the table. the box will dig into behind the foam and around the sides of the clear resin on the open end of the table.
Once that styrene box is sealed, it'll create a closed off area where I can pour the resin freely without having to worry about is seeping into the foam for the whole length of the board.
I just think that it's an extra step that can avoid some potential hassle down the road. :thumbup:
