I made this viaduct from an elm that grew within 500yards of the actual viaduct it’s based on. The bridge when built had the biggest stone arch in the world. It also featured in the film mission impossible. I built it to near enough a 1:190 scale

Inspired work, and a cool story. Saying that there’s a lot to be learned from Roman architecture is a tremendous understatement. So what’s next? The Flavian Ampitheater?

Your model at least has some archictural detail that can be realized in wood as you did.
Nice looking model, I would like to know more about what tools and processes you used to build it!
