Some of you may remember last year I had a tragic accident with my Giant Wheel and it was destroyed except for the seats and trailers. Well, I finally decided to get off my butt and build another one. This one is built much stronger and taller (more true to scale) and painted in a deep teal instead of light lime green. Amazingly enough progress is going smoothly and quickly and so far I am extremely happy with the results. Got the tubs finished, painted and attached today! Here's some NEW pics for you all.[:D]

Thanks guys! I used to have the specs for it, but I must have deleted them, so I drew up plans using all my pics as a guide. Yes, Greg, I build all of my rides non-static just in case I decide to motorize them in the future, that way if I do motorize it will take the least amount of modifications. I wanted to send you the specs on the actual ride, Greg, but like I said above, I must have deleted them, I do, however, have alot of good shots of this ride which I can send you, so PM me and let me know. Thanks again, you guys![:D]

Kenny that looks awesome.

Makes me wish that Rainman would have released his kit so I could build one.

Maybe we could get Don Cummons to build one. [;)]
