Noah’s Ark

A popular ride of the 1930’s lasting well into 1970’s with some still in use at vintage rallies. The model features plain circular rounding boards and a pitched roof. The mounts are 12 motorcycles, four chariots, and 24 animals. The two wheeled centre truck carries the paybox, motor and gearing. The motor drive is simple and inexpensive.
In 1/24th scale the model is 650mm (25½”) in diameter and in 1/16th scale 970mm (38¼”).

For those who want to build the model in 1/16th scale I provide one extra drawing to complement the 1/24th scale design which the customer scales up to suit.
