Obviously a substantial structure like this a very expensive and time consuming to build. It is certainly impressive and it you have the space and resources it would be a great project to work on. If you are not in that position then there are cheaper and easier options here.

    Lovely, but NOT necessarily expensive in dollar terms. A bridge like this can be built with polyfoam or timber and card, plaster and paint. A bit of time on your hands and artistic talent might be handy but not vital.

    There are a number of Youtube videos, but I direct you to the happy chap on Marklin of Sweden (in English). He has done wonders with cheap foam packaging.

    Someone certainly did a great job on this. Impressive!
