My, my, my. Who is the handsome devil in this photo, I wonder? 

...does floor have room for one more? :faint: *offers cake*

I am curious though, what else did you see from where you were standing? May I have details on the scenery, darlin? ;)

I could see.... I COULD SEE.....

Bah. Sorry. I can't get my imagination round the fact that I'm looking at nothing more than the face of a brick wall there :D

Flattery will get you... everywhere probably! :P
Even on the floor. Floor likes the company :)

Actually. Floor is a bit of an attention whore if I'm honest :D

Hahaha! It definitely likes getting laid...

So what's the full text on the bridge?

Not a clue.

The first part will be about the fact that the bridge didn't exist on the first Hogwarts model though.
I don't think it had been featured, as only 2 or three books had been published when we started making everything.
(worked in the model unit form Mid 2000 to early 2001)

The model and surrounding location changed drastically along the way to allow for new things written in the later books.
Even the second film had quite a few additions and changes from the first.

Eg. The towers even changed on top of the part that's based on Durham Cathedral. They became taller and more pointy.

We also made a whole small scale landscape (Including miniature trees with trunks stolen from Sleepy Hollow.. shhhh) ;)
The Large model would then be filmed and then dropped in place at a smaller size (for wide angle flyby shots etc)

The original landscape didn't really cater for the bridge at all.

I think the text at the end will just be saying that they only made a small-ish full scale section of the bridge for filming, and the rest was miniature/cgi.

Yes, I'm familiar with the model.  Just thought you were at the attraction, not an actual filmer :)
Nice to have been involved with such a large project, I'll bet.

Utterly amazing to work on! :)
To see the fantastically detailed models and sets being made from start to finish was just an incredible experience on it's own.
Being able to actually work on it though was like an added bonus sometimes :D
