This instructable describes the assembly of a 3D Printed kit for a 1:100 scale replica of the famous Bailey Bridge of World War 2.
The design for this kit was done in Sketchup from images of plans found on the Internet. The goal was to be as accurate as possible in terms of following the famous design, but obviously having to make allowances for the scale such that it be assemble-able, for the fact that the kit will be 3D Printed, and finally to minimize print time as much as possible.
There are currently four variants of the Bailey Bridge that can be built with this kit though only the Double-Single version is for sale on eBay. The bridge can also be printed with a road that is 55mm wide to support Flames of War game play. The kits for sale on eBay include this as an option.
We are building a two section bridge of the Double-Single variety (Double Panels, Single Level). The parts for this model are:
Note that part #6 has been altered as you can see in the second image above. This Instructable will be updated prior to release of the model files to reflect any build testing changes.
