This is the tallest and easiest truss model bridge in the range, standing at 340mm high. Within around an hour of opening the box and popping out the precision cut plywood pieces you will have a fully functioning lifting bridge. These models are designed to be played with and enjoyed.
Part of a series of three plywood bridge kits, this bridge can be displayed as a tribute to truss bridges or used as part of creative play. It is compatible with wooden train sets, cars, boats and, as the manufacturer suggests, hamsters?! Simply wind the handle to smoothly lift the centre part of the bridge to allow trains, planes and automobiles to pass underneath. There are comprehensive step by step instructions that include links to useful and interesting websites exploring the engineering features of truss bridges.
This product includes:
- 20 plywood and wooden pieces

You may find it easier to build with additional tools such as scissors (not included).
