Greetings all you intrepid paper lovers. We have mentioned recently that we want to do some Chama buildings and also some mine tipples. We have been working on them, but things do take time. I need your help with my current task. One of the things that we have to be able to do for either of these projects is to be able to produce timber trestle bents and cribbing in various sizes. (The buildings themselves are the easy part. It’s the support pieces that really mess up a schedule.) I would really appreciate it is you all would look at the three pictures and let me know your opinions. Does this look enough like wood or do I have to make some revisions. One interesting thing about this bent is that the material to make it costs about 75¢, but the NBW cstings (Grandt) are like $5.00. And they are only on one side. (NO!, I can’t make paper NBW’s) So please let me know what you think. Everything is straight so don’t pick on that. I was just so close the image started to distort.
Thanks for your help.
Thanks everyone, so far for your comments. Yes!, of course the NBW need rusting. I am only concerned with the wood. Yes, there will be a couple a three different colors, probably. (Who knows, maybe more.) This particular pattern is supposed to be fairly new looking. And I do have examples of new, fairly light colored timbers.
