This continues the restoration story of the Double Cantilever Bridge model. For previous reports on this see postings from 8/19, 8/26 and 9/21. The cavity between the cast of the top of the stand and the bridge connection has been carefully painted with a soap releasing agent. A line of screws are inserted into the bottom of the cavity [see last photo in 9/21 report] to provide reinforcement. Plaster is poured into this cavity and over the screws.

The bottom cast is complete and the model has been carefully sanded down to its plaster surface. The next step is a completely new coat of silt sprayed from a solution of silt, glue and water.
