the massive octagonal towers featured machine gun positions near the base
they consumed a lot of space on the panel
unable to find Lionel tracks with a tight enough curve to suit my purposes
I was forced to build the tracks by hand using blueboard
it was easier than I thought it would be
the bridge and towers are all removable to ease storage and transportation
I tried to keep the look of the real thing while adding a cartoonish touch. The blocky look of the bridge and the whimsical railroad tracks help to add to the "let's not take this too seriously" air of the entire project (I hope). Barring any unforeseen hurdles you can see this in action at Spartacon this Saturday in Lansing.
