Whipple Bridge Ready for Paint

   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.
