The Whipple bridge has been assembled and is now ready for painting which will be done later today. I did make one addition to the trusses before assembly. I noticed on the prototype photos that the trusses have gussets on the bottom as well as the top. So, I used styrene strips to add gussets to the bottom of the trusses. Hopefully I will also be able to get the bridge installed today or tomorrow.
Next will be constructing a couple of bridge piers and then the camel back bridge.
