Outnumbered and outgunned, forced into a defensive siege or a last stand against the odds. This is a familiar theme for many famous battles and so here we have the Lufira Bridge, where the Siege at Jadotville, Congo happened in September 1961.. The lightly armed Irish soldiers, besieged in Jadotville (modern Likasi), resisted Katangese assaults for six days as a relief force of Irish and Swedish troops unsuccessfully attempted to reach the Irish force.
The cleverly designed joints make this MDF kit very versatile in that extra arches can be added very easily.
Railing extension sections can also be added.
