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:
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!
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.
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.
