Re: The Model Cyclone Racer

Happy Birthday Cyclone Racer, you would have been 89 today. As far as I'm concerned, I'm pretty much finished with this model. All I need to finish is one more train and some other little loose details to be straightened out. Three and a half years of working a few hours every day and or night to tackle what I knew would be another long drawn out project. Last Saturday a friend of mine and I took it out for a photo shoot alongside the water's edge. Last Saturday was the last opportunity to do the photo shoot before I drive this thing up to a Buena Park storage facility to store until the Banquet at ACE con 42. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Ok some of those pictures, I can’t tell if they’re the real coaster itself or the model! Great job! I really love all the detail you put into it =)

Notice the paper cut outs. I soon will have a Go Fund Me where you can buy a spot on the train. First person to copy and paste this sentence in a postreply gets a free seat.

Yup! Like that! Just send me an image similar to this one, arms down at side or straight up in the air, (higher than this)

Absolutely beautiful, it's been great seeing this project develop. The model looks incredible, you can really see the hard work and passion that went into it. I wish I could see it in person, but alas, I live on the other side of the country.

Thanks I appreciate that you never know it may end up at a rollercoaster museum near you one day

Last weekend I drove two-thirds of the model up to Buena Park where it sits in storage until the convention

The ride looks absolutely beautiful. I've never heard of the coaster itself but it's such a unique take on a racer, and I'd love to see a company try and recreate it. Stunning work!

It was awesome seeing this ride in person! But to be honest, it was even more awesome to see some of those pics on the water where I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't a picture of the real thing!
