Default Rollercoaster

Hi all,

Just been knocked out by a 24 hours gastric bug and today I've got my strength back to do something.

I started on Rollercoaster (see my Retirement Present thread) last week but today I made great headway:


This is one of the simplest and enjoyable kits I've made, items are bagged, no sprues, no cutting, emery board provided, 36 pages of instructions and at 28" x 12" it is some kit!!! What more can you ask for?

Cheers,

Dave

Sorry to hear you were sick - but that is a great looking kit! Who makes it again? I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. (I've always wanted to build an amusement park.)

That's a very nice model and very well executed! It reminds me of the two years my wife and I lived within a quarter mile of an amusement park. The sound of the roller coaster (and its riders) really carries!
