Vizcaya Bridge
"Puente Vizcaya" Part of the World Heritage.
About this creation
Vizcaya Bridge is the oldest hanging transporter bridge in the world. It was built in 1893 and designed by Alberto de Palacio, one of Gustave Eiffel's disciples.
It is located near Bilbao (On the spanish north coast), and I have crossed it several times. (My wife is from Portu ;-)

Scale is around 1:300.



The towers are made with layered plates, which curves in two directions, to achieve the slim look.















The hanging transporter fits nano-scale cars!

Wonderful "bridge". I did not know that such things existed and had a very interesting tour searching for "bridges" like this. Your version is excellent!

Quoting Vibor Cavor Amazing, my friend. This is really a cool creation. So this really exists? Wow! Now build it in minifig scale. I bet that'd be impressive ;))
It most cetainly exist. Iīve crossed it myself a couple of times. In minifig-scale (1:45) it would meassure 3.5m long. Google it! ;-) @everybody; Thanks for the comments!

Hey Henrik:), a very nice piece of work/art. Itīs interesting how you used plates for the weight-carrying structures. This whole bridge is spectacular in itself, as well as its "transformation" in Lego. At first I thought the fixing of the cables must have been difficult, but your solution would even work for somebody applying "sausage fingers" (thick fingers) on the filigree construction:). A very nice model! Best regards, Steffen

This could also be a minifigscale bridge or interior for a starship with a few mods.
