    Very good - they're doing a very professional job.

    But, tell me, where is this bridge (8th image on linked Orbx page):

    I don't recognise it - unless it's the new Prince Charles bridge (2nd Severn Crossing)?

    Similar, but the OrbX model's  'V' shape' supporting cables don't quite match...

    it is interesting, if you look at the photos available from on the bridge they are crossed as orbx portrayed them , albeit finer, but some of the older photos look different , maybe they have changed the way it is suspended in recent years?

    You know me by now - a bl**dy pedant! But 'albeit finer' is somewhat of an understatement, what?!?

    Thanks for putting me right, James.
