Skid

This ride was first seen in the UK in the 1930’s and offered a fast and noisy ride. The cars run on a level steel track with some degree of car control in the hands of the rider. There are several still travelling today. The design includes details of both 1930’s and 1960’s decoration. The drive is based around Meccano parts.
In 1/24th scale the model is 620mm (24¼”) in diameter.
