LSWR style etched brass lattice footbridge kit available from Severn Models in 4mm scale

Severn Models have added a LSWR  etched brass lattice footbridge kit in 4mm scale to their excellent and ever increasing range of etched brass model kits and detailing parts. Their D24 kit is based on the bridges at New Milton and Addlestone, and intended to sit on top of the station platform level, to span two tracks.

The high level of detail is evident

The high level of detail includes etched mortar lines for all the brickwork, diamond pattern stair treads, fully overlapping lattice steelwork detail, angle iron framing, and many of the construction rivets. Each brick stair has an overall footprint of approx 94 x 34mm, with the span between stairs is approx 165mm.

As with all Severn Models kits they are supplied as a flat packed brass etch kit, requiring construction & painting. Severn Models advise that all test building of the kit was done with superglue assembly – doing dry assemblies of parts, then adding drops of glue with the tip of a scriber. Capillary action draws the glue into the joints. I have successfully assembled other Severn Models items with superglue in the past, you can also solder the kit if you wish.

A nice LSWR / SR specific addition to the Severn Models range of kits, that are well designed and make up lovely models.
