Here is a pic of one of your S scale Howe Through Truss bridges that is nearly complete. Your kits and stains are outstanding! I love building with your products. I used a half and half mix of Driftwood and Light Gray on the bridge and piers. I think this project is turning out great so far and will make a spectacular scene on my railroad when installed. I just started work on building the Howe Deck Bridge and am enjoying it as much as the first two kits. Thanks for providing such quality kits and stains.
The following photo was sent to us by Richard Morgan from Illinois. "Here's my Deck/Through/Deck bridge on my layout made from your fabulous kits". The second photo shows how Richard adapted our Pile Pier kit to accommodate the HO Deck and Through bridge.
What fabulous workmanship!

I am a novice and getting better due to your stains.
What you see below are structures weathered with your stains without paint except for the windows and doors.
I used your Yellow Cream for the upper structure and weathered it with the Light Brown.
The wall next to the structure was stained with a Boxcar Brown and I used sandpaper to strip away some stain.
The framing was weathered with Golden Brown.
The little structural below the upper structural was stained with the Hunter Green Stain.
All stairs, platforms were stained with the Light Gray or Sandalwood Brown stains.
This project is still in process…much to do and fix!
Again, still a novice and doing my best and will get better.
Thanks Rick for a great product."
"I used "Sandlewood, light Gray and Dark brown" along with some real dirt. Tan paint on the seat and silver paint for the external valve pushrods. Again light Gray Testors primer."
