Anyone here have color pictures showing what RAH models look like when they're completed on your layouts?

Well I know Steve F. could help you on this one,

I'll list the people with the finest RAH models I've seen so far:

1. Sven- Great Rockin'Rollin, Zipper, StarShip2K, Round Up, Fun Slide, Twister, Pirate Ship, and an awesome Ring Of Fire.

2. Steve F.- Great SuperLoops (RAH Ring Of Fire) and he has a Zipper on work.

3. Tamadachi76- awesome Zipper.

4. Dave Cartwright AKA. dcvader- Scooter, Zipper, Gravitron, Round Up, Venture River, Flying Saucers, Convoy, Sky Diver, Alphine Funhouse, Fun Slide, Devils Joy Dark Ride and some kiddies!

5. Dan L.- RAH Side Shows Fronts

6. Chris Hurley AKA, SkyWheelRider- to my knowledge he owns a few pieces like the Scooter and some other ones.

I know their is a few more, but I just can't remember know.Dead
Hope this help a little bit.Big Smile

Those all look great, guys. I'm especially impressed with the RAH Zipper, I know they're not motorized, but are RAH models movable? Are they a lot more difficult to build than Faller kits?

Also, is it true that RAH is making a chaos and a kamikaze kit?

I wanted to clarify one thing. The trailers on my Skywheels are not RAH kits. They were built from scratch. The sideshows are from RAH, however I only used the front graphics. The rest of the entire pieces are scratch built.

Just for your information, Dave Cartwright's Round Up was built by Warren Renauld, and is NOT an RAH. I have a Round-Up from Warren Renauld as well.

As for RAH, I have a Ring of Fire, Scooter 2700, Tilt-A-Whirl, Scrambler, Pirate, Centre Joint, Super Slide, and some concession trailers. On order right now I have Sky Wheel trailers, a second Ring of Fire, Venture River, Monster conversion kit, a few centre joints, a couple of tents, MGR top, and a couple of line-ups.

The Scooter is coming along nicely, almost finished. The Super Slide I am going to rework, I painted it but never put it together. My Scrambler and Ring of Fire are okay, the next Ring of Fire will be much better as I know what to do. I have not started the Pirate yet beyond painting the boat. The centre joint was easy to put together, took longer to paint than put together, LOL. The Tilt, ah well, I hate it. The plates would not fit together correctly, even with the reccommened trimming in the instructions, they would not sit on the base right, just looks awful, I will never use it. I have not put together the concession trailers yet either, but they look to be fairly simple.

Overall, I think RAH models are fine, you just have to be careful what you select and you should have some idea of scratch building. His prices are very resonable, generally worth it. I will post some photos of all my models soon. Smile

Oh he told me that he had a RAH Round-Up and it's on his old midway pics. But your right, he does have a Warren Renauld Round-Up now, which probably replaced his old Round-Up.Big Smile

Awesome rides that you have from Ron!! And you are so right about his Tilt-A-Whirl, it's a disaster. Dead I had one and it came out alright, but not to my standards. Disapprove So I'm planning to buy a new one and really take my time on it! Big Smile Can't wait to see you midway, try to get some single pics of your Ring Of Fire, and maybe your Tilt.

Well I'm going to post a e-mail reponse that I got from RAH two days ago!:

Everything is in stock, New rides that will be available next month are the kamikaze, chaos and roll-o-plane.

So that's what I have so far. Smile
