Stone Bridge from Hobby Bunker

Here's a good deal if you're looking for a nice sized stone bridge - picked it up from Hobby Bunker for $12.00 - less shipping, which is a flat rate of $6.00 in the USA (free for orders over $100.00 - again for the USA). Sorry my UK buddies, but at least you have all the great figure companies (that would be Eureka for the folks Down Under too). Anyway, here it is after I gave it a quick dry-brush of greys, followed by a Minwax stain and finally a coat of Krylon Matte. The finish is not as flat as Testors Dullcote, but Krylon is cheaper and as it is a gaming piece, it'll likely be handled a lot anyway. I may go over it again with a dry-brush to dull it down.
As it's advertised as 54mm, it is quite a good size: 10 1/4" x 4 3/8" x 2 1/2" with 1" arch; Just wide enough for a 1:48th scale King Tiger.
But just shy of 80mm wide - not quite enough to have two stands based for Black Powder to go side by side.
Still, quite a bargain, I think.
