Nice concrete finish.
Interesting diorama scene.

These parts are models of concrete bridge sections including piers, crossheads and beams.  The beams are modelled after real ones weighing around 100 tonnes.

They are made in Australia by BSR Beams.


The parts were delivered inside cut expanded polystyrene shapes, and secured with tape. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model. 

There is no information about the parts.

Detail and Features

The parts are made out of cast concrete so they look very realistic.  The quality of the casting is very good and for the most part the finish is even.  They are reinforced internally so they are not brittle and can therefore take some load.

Flat bearing surfaces are very good so the parts stand together well.

The beams have two pairs of cast-in lifting loops.  A particularly nice aspect is that the beams have been cast with a smooth and convincing pre-camber.

Each beam weighs around 0.65kg / 1.5lbs.

If enough parts are obtained they can be combined to make a multi-span viaduct, or placed side-by-side to make a twin carriageway layout.

Quality and Price

They are well made, good quality parts, and are reasonable value.


These are very good bridge parts and being made of concrete they look considerably better than resin parts.  They are ideal in a diorama posed with suitable construction equipment, and the beams make an impressive load for a large heavy crane, or on heavy haulage.
