Carl,

It's our Italian "bricklayer" mentality.

Keep at it! You're sure not boring me. When it has to move it's a whole another ballgame. A few Missteps are just part of the game.

Jim, my mom was 100% Italian and tenacious was a good word for her. I always knew I was in trouble when mom would start speaking Italian at me and my Irish dad would just chuckle. I can tell you I donít care what anyone calls it, but you have to have a great temperament to be able to get through the issues you have resolved.
An impressive build it is.

Bob, the voice of experience speaks with straight tongue. Things do get a little complex don't they.

Tom, your mom ever give you whack with a wooden spoon? The old attention getter!

Oh I was a good Catholic boy, but yeah mom got me a couple times with the spoon. What I really remember are the nuns at Queen of the Universe with my momís ok smacking my hands with the ruler. I forged, not real well, my motherís signature in 2nd grade. Never did or even think of doing that again.

See it! Absolutely the best scene with the lit ferris wheel rolling down the peer. Classic scene!!!
Top of my list if I could recreate a scene in HO!!

Waiting for paint to dry....The main wheels now run true. The framework needed to be shored up to tighten the flexing of the risers. Playing with making the seats little more elaborate while the paint drys.
