Linka


description

Moulding kit which produces plaster components in a range of standard sizes in a wide variety of designs. These included various wall finishes, window and door designs and special parts such as arches. Parts connect together by means of interlocking castellated edges, but also need glue, which is supplied. Sheets of roofing, again in a number of finishes can also be produced, but they have no edge connections. Special additional moulds produce church steeples, crenellated castle tower tops, dormer windows and other more three-dimensional parts.

The sets also provided measuring spoons, mixing bowls and various tools to manipulate the plaster mixture plus plastic building details such as guttering and window glazing and paper decals.
