Hey all,

Apologies to Sir Lomero if I'm stealing thunder, but this has been up on Brickshelf for a couple of days and he hasn't posted it here yet. Check out Sir Lomero's [url=http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=182536]Small Bridge:

It looks like he used this technique by Stapelaar discussed in greater detail in this thread.

Wow, thanks for posting! I really like the way that all of the brown tiles are used!

Very cute bridge!
I like the wooden rails on the side and the wooden surface of the bridge. The use of the 2x2 and 1x1 round pieces make for nice detail.
And the stage coach crossing over completes a perfect scene!

Simply awsome. I like that technique he used for the bridge a lot, I plan on using it for one of my MOCs soon.

Thanks for posting it, Bruce. I just want do it too :)

And it's true I used here Stapelar technique, but (as you can see) with smaller baseplate.

What you think about coach?

Thanks for comments

Wow, very cool. I love how the brown tiles really look like some real wooden bridges I've seen.

Very nice, very SNOTty. The windows (with the grill tiles stuck in the sides of the arches) are pure genious.

Wow, a great MOC/vig! The bridge was is very well made and thought out. The curve of the railings is a good idea and the little decorations on the bridge make it very interesting and pleasing to the eye. The landscaping is done well and adds alot to the MOC.

This is one of the best coaches I have ever seen made out of LEGOs. It is a good size and a good scale. In addition it has alot of detail to make if feel it was made out of wood or something, not just LEGO.

Overal a spectacular job, I am very impressed!

I forgot about the Stapelaar technique until I saw this. It looks great, and has just the right amount of detail. The cart especially is quite an effective design; I'll have to remember it when I eventually get around to building one of my own.

The bridge looks cool, but I dont see what technique everyone seems so amazed by. Would someone be kind enough to enlighten me?

Thanks,Kyle

Kyle,

People are commenting on the smooth curve of the bridge surface. The technique was discussed in this thread.

Very nice.

I like the way the landscaping, ie the grass and stones of the road "tie into" the bridge itself. Makes it feel real. The architecture of the bridge is appealing to the eye.

The carriage is very neat. The botton is studs down and the top studs up. Lots of detail. Must stare at pics longer to understand how you did this....
