Bridge of boats ....

I wanted a bridge of boats rather than using my 18C pontoon bridge for river crossings; decided to make one myself using card etc ...

I decided to have some narrow boats that were about the same size as one of the 18C pontoons. These I would make from cardboard. To start I made a half boat shape template, drew round it on a marked out piece of cardboard; then cut out the bases.....
I made up some sides of thinner card, which is more bendable, and tried out how they would look ...
then started building the boats .....
the basic boats with my Reiver castings pontoon bridge deck and ramps
the ramps work fine, but the detail on the deck is a bit small for 40mm figs, so I made another one from cardboard and scribed in some larger more random planks....
painted up and ready for a river crossing ....
