Golden Gate Bridge Model
CMR is building an exact scale model of the Golden Gate Bay Bridge. To support such a long model
a one piece aluminum and wood base was built. The model will feature architectural
style terrain using contour maps lines as guides. The bridge will be built from acrylic and metal.

The bridge mock up. The aluminium base is built, the wood base top is primed and ready to paint, the terrain
is cut and glued up and ready to finish and the bridge is mocked up in cardboard.
Detail view of one end showing the terrain contours.
Here the bridge has been primed red. This is not the final color but close to it. Some parts are
still white acrylic. The white form under the main span is supporting it untill the metal
cables are installed.
The cables are installed and ready to paint. Note the penny as a sense of scale.
