South Eastern Finecast
Finecast manufacture two turntable wells and bridge kits. The diameters being 12" (76ft) and 101/4" (65ft).The wells are supplied separately from the bridges, for those who wish to build their own bridges/wells. Each well is vacuum-formed from rigid polystyrene, with a ball race being moulded into its base. The surfaces are textured to give a brick and concrete effect, with provision for laying a circular section of rail, for the wheels of the bridge to run on. The bridge has a rigid Tuffnol deck, with vacuum-formed girder sides, which have rivet detail.

TT01 Large Turntable Well 12" Diameter
TT02 Large Turntable Bridge 12" Deck
TT03 Small Turntable Well 10 3/4" Diameter
TT04 Small Turntable Bridge 10 3/4" Deck
TT05 Set of four Ball Race Bearings (To replace bridge with white metal wheels if required)
TT06 ROMFORD 1:40 modified gear set (For operating the bridge by hand crank)
TT07 12" of 3/32" Brass rod (For making hand crank for bridge operation)

Perhaps you could cut down one of the bridge decks?

Regards
Paul
