Vizcaya Bridge is the oldest hanging transporter bridge in the world. It was built in 1893 and designed by Alberto de Palacio, one of Gustave Eiffel's disciples.
It is located near Bilbao (On the spanish north coast), and I have crossed it several times. (My wife is from Portu ;-)
Scale is around 1:300.
The towers are made with layered plates, which curves in two directions, to achieve the slim look.
another masterpiece! this is for real? cars hanging on a roped platform? you know, you have my utmost respect for all you did, and your comments, but, i d really like it if you could put a pic of the real thing, for comparison, as for your build here, it s awesome, i m currently building one for cybercity, and the bridge is for the train,
i definitively have problems with the tracks,
so, i appreciate what you ve done here! awesome work!
Hey Henrik:), a very nice piece of work/art. Itīs interesting how you used plates for the weight-carrying structures. This whole bridge is spectacular in itself, as well as its "transformation" in Lego.
At first I thought the fixing of the cables must have been difficult, but your solution would even work for somebody applying "sausage fingers" (thick fingers) on the filigree construction:). A very nice model! Best regards, Steffen
