Eric10 Posted January 24, 2010 Share Posted January 24, 2010 I figured I would share my amusement park models that I have been building for numerous years. I decided I'd begin with one of my favorites..the faller power tower. I also took pictures while I was building it, so there is a construction log to go with it! NOTE: Some of the pictures are out of focus, because it's sometimes hard to get a focused pic of such a tiny part. If you have any questions just ask!! The underside of the model..lots of wires due to control box wires and about 7 lights... Well, that's it for now...If you have any models you want to see built..just ask. I may have it. The right side of the model. The following is all the accessories onto the base. The ride is supposed to be a "carnival" power tower. Therefore it comes with a trailer that the ride can collapse into. (although..it's glued so it won't collapse into the following trailer) The operators booth. The completed ticket booth. This is where you buy your tickets..yet to be assembled.. More miscellaneous decoration... Miscellaneous decoration... I had no idea what this was until I realized that it was some sort of grease for the motor. This is the supplied thread that goes throughout the tower... The reed switches attatch onto this white "clip". These are the reed switches. They tell the control box when to start and stop the motor. It was now time, to hook the model up to make sure everything worked. Here is the control box..that allows varied operation. Completed car..with various riders... Time for car assembly!... This is where the thread is pulled through and back down. It acts similar to a "pulley" system. This is the top of the tower... This is where the halfes are glued together. The picture is very blurry...but these go on the tower adding color. This is the tower construction, which is built in two halves...on the far left, you can see one half fully built, and on the right you can see what it takes to get the half. These are the "large wheels". The thread goes through these providing the lift of the car. The motor assembly.. A decal was then added to the base. The finished legs are also in front of the base. The legs were then built. The base was built first. ...and more parts... Parts... The instruction manual that is provided, fairly easy to follow The following is the box that the moel came in...
