Kits for the top, platform and twisted brasses for adult Dobby or Galloper models. All feature etched brass rounding boards and swifts pre-soldered together. The platform is a one piece resin casting showing all the planking work in detail. The centre and crown shutters are also etched in brass. Complete with a full complement of sixty twisted brass horse and platform rods. The model is assembled using a set of simple jigs which guarantee that the top of the ride is kept concentric with and the correct distance from the platform and centre. The jigs are loaned as required.
