This listing is for a premade 1:64 or 1:48 scale liverpool water hazard, which can also be flipped over to serve as a painted plywood-top bridge. It’s meant for use in western trail class setups or under jumps as a liverpool.
Note: This liverpool was a prototype, so it’s not perfect (and has been discounted to match).
Neither the AHQA nor the 4H have any rules for water hazards, but it does meet the requirements for the AHQA SHW467.4 Ride over wooden bridge.
I have all of the Maggie Bennett Monthly Micros so if you would like a photo with a different model, just let me know!
The liverpool is made of basswood and has been sanded, assembled with wood glue, painted, and the ‘wet’ areas have been heavily glossed. The rest is coated with matte varnish so you can wipe it with a damp cloth, but you can’t soak it in water.
It’s water-resistant but not long-term water-proof. You can fill it with a tiny amount of water for a live show or photoshoot but if you let it sit, it will likely get damaged.
The liverpool is relatively sturdy, so it should hold up to basic wear and tear, but is not intended for young children. This is meant for adults (or young adults) who are using it for careful play, display, Photo Show, or Live Show setups.
The liverpool is 1 3/4 inches long, 3/4 wide, and 1/8 inches tall. The framing boards are 3/32 x 3/32 and the ‘plywood’ bottom is 1/32 thick.
For 1:64 (Breyer Mini Whinnies, Artist Resin Micro Minis, S scale) this would be 9 feet and 4 inches long, 4 feet wide, and 8 inches tall.
For 1:48 (Large Micro Minis, O scale) this would be 7 feet long, 3 feet wide, and 6 inches tall.
For 1:32 (Stablemates, 1 scale) this would be 4 feet 6 inches long, 2 feet wide, and 4 inches deep. It is too narrow to work as a bridge but could be a decorative element in a fence.
To see if this bridge will work with your model, it can be helpful to assemble a paper version and see how it looks. I do take custom orders, so if you need a fence that’s larger or smaller, please drop me a line at custom_orders@Martha.net.
