Some of these look like they're gonna be so easy until you go to build them. Anyways, here it is finally. She is fully functional and scratchbuilt.

Fantastic job! You've got to have enough stuff built by now for a small lay out!?

Hey Kenny,

That turned out great!!! Would love to see a video of it in operation and I think we all know about how involved these rides can get no matter how easy it looks....lol

Hey, great looking model. I too would love to see it run. If you need more tubs I have a supply of them and motorcyces.

Agreed. Your stuff always turns out so nice.

I would still love to see a photo of your complete layout.

Thanks guys! Actually, I had to get rid of alot of stuff when I moved from Edson to Saskatoon. I've only started rebuilding since I've moved back to Edmonton, which is ok because my Space Wheels weren't the right dimensions, Giant Wheel tubs weren't wide enough and I didn't like the repaint I did on it, Carousel spokes weren't strong enough to support the weight, Roll-o-plane was a little too tall, stuff like that. So, now I have the chance to correct all these things on my rebuilds. Also I'm gonna do all the flourescent tubes with flourescent paints so it will look totally lit up under black lights like Ron Hamm's layout, gonna be awhile but I'll just keep working at it till I have a decent sized lot. Right now I'm kind of on a flat ride spree so my show is not all wheels. Thank you again for your comments and interest.[:D]
Kenny.

Looks like they really liked those green and yellow lights on RAS.

[:D] They sure did, Bill! At night their midway looked other-worldly, a true sight to behold. [:D]
