Hey... Thanks for the interest. I'm working on several bridge projects right now that are much cooler than the three I posted a while back. Those were made in 1 evening, as quick studies of 3 major types of suspension bridges. I will be done with a traditional suspension 2 lane road bridge in minifig scale, with a central span of about 5 feet. It's looking nice!

oh okay that sounds good. Not many people have built suspension bridges so its a pretty small club. I look forward to seeing final pictures of your bridge as it looks like a pretty massive project.

Only 5 feet? Im sure you can make the span longer than that! I think minifig scale would be much longer.

Keep in mind, 5 feet is the central span. there's another 5 feet past that, making it about 10 feet long. It has two lanes of traffic and walkways on both sides.

Thats true but my train suspension bridge was 17 feet long and it was far out of minifig scale. A true minifig scale suspension bridge(for example the golden gate bridge) would be about 63 feet long. I know that 10 ft suspension bridge sounds like a pretty big lego model but in realistic terms it could be so much longer! I hope to create a minifig scale Suspension bridge one day.

This is true... The real bridge project I've been working on will be 22 feet, and 14 feet tall. And that's just one set of pylons and its cable-stayed span. Been working on it for 4 years. In the meantime, I wanted to build some models out of parts I already have, and that's where this one is coming from.
