Proud To Announce The Kitmaster Genesis Self Assembly Southern Building Kit Range

Kitmaster Genesis Southern Buildings

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 whilst embracing an exciting new future. 

 The kits will be laser cut from the finest self-coloured card and will 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 available online. 

The images below are of prototype models - any imperfections will be corrected prior to production
