The trestle

Here's the latest work on the layout. This trestle was constructed using my "poor mans trestle" technique using wooden matches and bamboo skewers. I bumped the tutorial thread I did on this just recently if anyone is interested in building trestles dirt cheap.
It is just sitting in place for the pic, I have to use some foam and sculptamold to build up the terrain.
The trestle also needs to be painted. I have never tried staining trestles built from these materials because I just don't think the bamboo skewers will take stain. I use an airbrush and layer on very thin coats of gray, black and brown to get a subtle aged effect for the wood. It's all explained in my tutorial.
As always....more to come....
