Tower Bridge

 

A Set 10 Model

 

A development on Model 9.20 from the 1954 Set Manual, the most realistic of the factory-published models.

 

The enhanced version is mounted on a base containing an automatic raising and lowering mechanism (which can be viewed from under the bascules) producing  a very good exhibition model which can be enhanced by the addition of Elektrikit lighting.

 

The mechanism provides a realistically long pause between each raising and lowering of the bascules. Should a bascule be disturbed by probing fingers, slip clutches render the model self-righting; when the bascules are down, they stay down; and when up, they stay up - just like the real Tower Bridge.

 

The model uses a mains induction motor, but other types of motor can be substituted. 

 

The plan includes a reproduction in full of the original Model 9.20 from the set manual.
