I put the Ferris Wheel in front of it to give it some scale and yes, it is non-static.[:D]

Looks good so far, except comparing it to the wheel, it is shorter than the real one would be. Ours is around 130' tall.

I'm really diggin that tower. Its prob my fav on the road, especially how it racks is neat, and the unique theme! Also like that mulligan wheel. Isn't your scale bigger than ho?

Thanks guys![:D] Ben, those are long wood dowels I found in the craft section at the dollar store, matchsticks and toothpicks. Ted, my scale is around 1:48. I really liked the theme too, after I saw pics of the Minnesota State Fair this year I just HAD to re-create it, looked soooo cool! I don't think it's too far off height-wise, here's a few side by side shots for a better perspective.

I guess it's not too far off. In HO scale, the model would be about 17-1/4" tall. I don't know what scale yours is, Kenny. But hey, it looks great, the detail is fantastic. I always thought a working clock on top would be a nice touch on the real one, on the model it would too, IMHO.
