The skywheel is all you chris !!!!!
So, in a few years, if you're walking down a midway and see a Sixcat or a Swinger or a bucket, look around. You might recognize an old man with a smile on his face. Especially if he's saying, "Hey Buddy, can I ask ya?" -sixcat,circa. 2007

Wish I could afford it. Plus, his rides are on those big bases, and I like to place my models wherever I can, and with those big bases you cannot, it is a straight, long midway every time. He sure does a fantastic job though! [:)]

Was watching both in the closing minute. Figured that it was you. Close one on the tilt.

Thank You. Been looking forward to bidding on them all week long. Wanted the Tilt, but either one was fine with me. Yeah CNYChris, really close on the Tilt. Waited until 45 seconds left to put my bid in, but connection and computer were working really well and it left too much time left. The person who outbid me had to have been watching it and reloading the page as much as I was. Prices were good. I thought that they would have gone higher. Not often that we see Cummons models on Ebay. Husrainbow sold his Sky Diver a while back and someone sold a couple as a set at a really cheap Buy it now price. That auction lasted a whole 9 hours. I'll have to post some photos in my Webshots when I get it and start adding details to it.

Know the feeling, been outbid many a time with only 4-5-6 seconds left. Guess that's one of the benefits of a superfast internet connection.

Even at the prices that they sold at, you've gotta be pretty serious about modeling to drop that kind of cash on them. True, they are hand built and the quality is second to none, but lots of folks I think would rather spend a lot less, in case the cat knocks it over, the kid destroys it, or their tastes change.

Ebay is also a funny place. Sometimes something will sell great one week, but you can't give it away the next. It takes the right bidder, in the right mood, and the right price, or else it'll just sit there. I posted the original links, because I figured someone here (out of the almost 500 members) would be interested, given exactly what they are. Guess I was right, but I figured that there would be more interest than there was. Now, the seller might not be as happy with the selling price, but sometimes that's the way it goes.

Enjoy the Sky Wheel, Brett. Glad you were able to win the auction.

Chris

PS - Pretty sure that I have you to thank for my finding MCW. You used to have a carnival website (started at Clarkson U.(Let's Go Tech![:D])) that had a link to Matt's site, right? If I recall correctly, you shut it down when things got a little crazy on your message board. Glad to see you here![8D]
