Big Wheel

Parts available to help you build a Big Wheel in 1/24th scale.
Seats – cast in white metal and consisting of seat, two sides and a back and two step sides. An etched brass step and brass or nickel silver rods for the safety bar and step hinge are supplied. Very finely cast and easy to assemble with glue or solder. The step, once assembled, folds back into the car as on the full size ride.

Seat bearings and rope carriers cast in brass – consisting of 24 pin brackets to fit to the end of the wheel’s arms and 24 matching socket brackets to fit to the sides of the seats. The 12 rope carriers fit onto the outer ends of the arms to take the drive rope.

Very simple General Arrangement manufacturer’s drawing with leading dimensions of the wheel. Whilst there are no details of drive or trailer I include a single sheet showing the drive for Rock-o-Plane which is similar.

A number of wheels have now been built using these parts and drawings.

Set of twelve seats – £110
Set of 24 pin brackets, 24 socket brackets and 12 rope carriers all finely cast in brass for strength – £205
