You can build 4 basic cyclic alkane structures with the basic Orbit Organic Chemistry Set 68845NV.
Note that the 3 and 4 carbon rings, cyclopropane and cyclobutane, are highly strained so we have used the 50mm flex bonds for C-C. The cyclopentane and cyclohexane use the standard 30mm grey bonds for C-C. This set also includes a bundle of 15 extra stiff 35mm bonds that can be used to show "chair-boat" flips in cyclohexane. Build these & other cycloalkanes with the Indigo® Instruments 3D Molecular Model Builder

Every Orbit molecular model set sold by Indigo Instruments is fully compatible with others you might own. You can replenish any set or customize it with Genuine Cochranes of Oxford Orbit Atoms.
I've had consistently great service from this company. Our students seem to really appreciate the reasonable price. In the years that we've used this product, not one has been returned due to defects.
Considering how many of these we sell to schools every year, that is high praise indeed. Thanks letting us know.
The easiest way to view & then build cycloalkanes with this model set is to use our 3D Molecular Model Builder in Orbit (basic) style. Just enter the compound name, hit the Build & Show Purchase options button & an image of the molecule & parts needed will appear. Follow the same steps but choose Orbit (flexible) to view Cycloalkanes; Advanced Ochem set.
