1/24th Scale News and Sales Items

An interesting 1/12th scale model of a steam switchback in the style of the preserved Rodeo Switchback.  A fairground organ for the centre is included.  The model has three rails like the original and the cars can be moved around the track by hand.  There is a part built mechanism to drive the ride which the purchaser will need to complete or replace.
Asking price – £1500, the model is located in West London.

A part built and currently dismantled 1/24th scale MFD5 Galloper, organ and just started MFD1 or 3 Ark or Waltzer.
The Galloper consists of Centre truck and gantry with motor, bevel drive gears and main gears fitted.  There is a mirror drum and cheese complete with contrate gear and pinions.  The top – roundings, swifts, quarterings, cranks and crank bearings are made and assembled.  The platform has been assembled and all steps made.  Twisted brass and jack rods are included.  The organ is a simple construction on its own truck.  The model has seen better days and some parts may be missing – all of these I can replace from here.
The Ark consists of just the base with motor and centre pole, the gates have been made and there is a full set of original LEGO wheels.
Also included are many original MFD plans and instructions and a copy of the Sunday Times magazine with Ward and Weedon’s article on Fairground Art.  There are some hand tools and model materials.
The seller is the daughter of the late builder who wishes to find someone to complete the galloper model.  Inquiries in the first instance to me – Doug Roseaman at info@fairgroundmodels.co.uk or 01380 850964.

I have recently added some of the late Bernard Murdock’s ‘Showland Library’ drawings to the ‘Masterclass’ page.  These are for a 12’6″ long horse drawn living van and for a 20′ long two room van.  Also added are the eight sheets of blueprints for an electric scenic railway.  See Masterclass
Following a recent commission for the mechanism and cars for an Austin Car Ride in 1/24th scale I am now able to offer individual cars.  See Austin Car Ride
