ModelPlan 269


Peter Thurston's


Skywheels Fairground Ride


This easy-to-build, 4' 6" high exhibition model is based on ModelPlan 152 (Phil Ashworth's Fully Automated Rotawheels) but in place of electrical automation uses the mechanical intermittent drive mechanism from ModelPlan 241 (Claudio Rabbi’s Double Flyboats). 


With this, in its operating cycle the skywheels rotate for 60 seconds and then remain at rest for 20 seconds.


Requires a single PDU motor.


12 pages including colour photographs, text and parts list.
