http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ridemodelers/  Then go into the "files" section, and Raymond Schrum has posted decals for retheming an IHC ThunderBolt into an Alpine Bobs. I used his upper scenery and sign, and photos of my own from some scenery by the Wizard for the inside scenery and outside lower scenery. A few pics:

I started several conversion scenery sets for the IHC Thunderbolt. As you have heard by now the only one I fully completed was the Alpine Bobs. I have partial sets of the Flying Bobs, Music Fest and Rock and Roll. I'll dig up what I have this weekend and post it to the Ridemodelers group on Yahoo. Remember these are only cosmetically retheming the IHC ride. They don't make the ride "better" than it is...

His alpine bobs conversion is good, you can see it on either Cspins, Hurleys or SilverCometJays IHC Thunderbolts.... all which look good

But a full sweep conversion, new scenery, and custom paint really does wonders. I've been told that mine looks better then the cummons which is quite a compliment (which I'm quite proud of)!

I have tried numerous times converting the IHC T-Bolt into the Flying Bobs. Once i did get the sign authentic to a T! , but, quite a far cry from Don's Flying Bobs LOL LOL. The cars are too "jammed" up looking you might say. It's not a bad ride though for someone on a low budget. I always tried motorizing it with a Faller motor and it worked perfectly, though some of the sweeps that hold the cars up were breaking off. I don't think IHC puts their heart into their carnival rides like Faller does....the quality of them. Hi Rainman, i like that orange looking car under your name, it looks ALOT like the General Lee car from The Dukes of Hazzard. I'm a big Dukes / General Lee fan as well as the traveling carnival. I have a '69 Dodge Charger being converted right now. Later then
