I was looking for any excuse to delay painting the rails and ballasting the track, and I found it ! A very inexpensive and fun side project, a weight bridge structure kit from Lcut. Kit # B 70-14, cost is only £10, or $12 USD. The kit is laser cut and is very high quality, everything fit together perfectly and the whole thing was built, painted and weathered in about 2 hours. I chose to prime it with Humbrol acrylic, then brush paint it with Tamiya acrylics and used chalk powders for weathering. The model takes up about 114 x 132mm, including the base. Photos show a little gap between building and base, that will disappear when building is glued to the base. I hope to improve my painting skills in this area but I think it turned out pretty good. Now sadly onto the ballasting :(

Finally, had a little spare time to run some trains ! Needed to test out all the wiring to make sure they're no problems with the control panels or anything else. It all checks out, so now onto ballasting & weathering the trackside. I hope to start a major structure very soon as well !
