There's a toothpick-made Ferris Wheel at the Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum down there at Myrtle Beach. I hadn't been in there in a long time, but i remember seeing a toothpick-made Ferris Wheel And roller coaster. Pretty impressive! And they both functioned! [:0] LB, please do post photos of that Sky Diver when you're done building it, i would love to see it! And i know i posted on here a while back about possibly doing up a Huss Rainbow out of 2x4's, but that plan fell through. I'd rather build a toothpick Sky Diver, that would be pretty neat to see, IF done up right and it looks true to the real Sky Diver.

Make your traveling sweeps out of party toothpicks, bamboo squires, swizzle sticks, bicycle spokes, Sig balsa, NESL basswood, Evergreen plastic, Sig push wire, K&B brass rod or whatever is in scale.
