Lynton & Barnstable Railway Building Kits
Dapol have a long standing tradition of manufacturing self assembly kits in the UK. Some of our Kitmaster tooling dates back to the late 1950’s and is a real testament to how good the tool makers in this country were back then.
As part of Dapol’s commitment to continue manufacturing as many products in the UK as possible we are launching a new series of laser cut card kits. This represents a major investment in new equipment to be used here in Chirk where the kits are designed and manufactured in house. The new range of models will be marketed under the brand name Kitmaster Genesis to pay homage to the old whist embracing an exciting new future.
The kits are laser cut from the finest self-coloured card and include all the necessary injection moulded or 3D printed accessory parts (including glazing) to complete the model. Where appropriate the models will be supplied with printed interior decoration. All you need is glue.
The kits are based on real world prototypes but are easily customizable lending themselves to “kit bashing” should the modeler wish to have something truly bespoke on their layout. Each kit will have a set of detailed assembly instructions included with them.
We hope the kits bring you many ours of enjoyment with both their construction as well as taking pride of place on your layout. The L & B buildings form part of a range of models creatted by Dapol and our sister company Lionheart Trains that include motorized signals, locomotives and carriages .
