Originally this was going to be a Century Wheel but when I went to do the test paint schemes for the tubs I hated everything I could come up with, so no-go. I was left with these great little gondolas that looked like crap with all these different test color schemes. Then I remembered how impressed I was with the Alamo Attractions Mulligan Wheel when I saw it in pics of the Minnesota State Fair. I figured the shape of my gondolas was close enough so here we are so far. There's still a bit of work to go on it, (deck, fencing, steps, bally, etc.) but it's close enough for me to show ya, hope ya like! [:D]

That looks incredible Kenny! Great job! IMHO, Gary Denton's Mulligan Wheel is the coolest looking one-trailer gondola wheel on the road. Great choice!

Thanks so much for your kind words everyone![:D] BCM, I'm not sure of the scale I work in, someone once told me it looked about 1:48 though. Chris, I 100% agree with you, it is extremely cool looking. The first time I saw pics of it was from the Oklahoma State Fair and I thought that then and kind of forgot about it, till I saw it on the Minnesota Midway and fell in love with the thing, lol. I'm glad I decided to tackle it as it is turning out pretty gear as the say in Engulund. I'm gonna do the Big Ben and a single Sky Wheel too, sort of re-create that section of the St. Paul midway. Thanks again guys!

Nice job! Is this the RAH kit? What type of paint did you use (acrylic, enamel?)

Thanks guys, mattypark, this is not a kit, I scratchbuild all of my models and I use Testors model paints, enamel. Whenever I need a custom color I just mix it up myself, also using Testors.
