This easy to assemble Strauss Trunnion Bascule Bridge is part of a series of three that the Q Shop stocks. This replica of the Joseph Strauss design was built all over North America in the 1920s and 1930s. Build and learn how this bridge works and why it has become an icon in many cities around the world. There are still many of these bridges in operation today! Is there one near you?

This kit includes comprehensive instructions and also includes links to useful and interesting websites for extra information. Great for anyone interested in engineering/construction. The build time is approximately one hour.

This product includes:

  • Over 20 plywood and wooden pieces
  • Stickers for the road and road signs (including a blank sticker)
  • Six page detailed instruction manual with images and background information on Bascule bridges
  • Glue, sand paper and string
