Bob writes: "[This is] a photo of my completed double ferris wheel. This model is powered by 4 motors (2 driving main H frame and 2 driving wheels) using ladder chain and nylon strings and 4 D cells. My type 3 ferris wheel is currently being displayed at Jeffrey's 4th Street Antique Mall in Royal Oak, MI. Our Large Erector display includes: 3 White Erector trucks, 2 steam engines, merry go round, B set ferris wheel, gigantic 6-foot ferris wheel, Erector Zeppelin, Hudson Engine & Tender and a huge 7-foot trellis arch. We also have over 25 sets on display from Mysto, Gilbert, Trumodel, and Meccano ranging from 1915 thur 1960. We, Bob Hellner and myself, have set this display up to complement the Movie 'The Man That Saved Christmas'. This display will be on going into Jan of 2003 at Jeffery's for all of his customers to share during this holiday season.

Here are a couple of trucks that have custom Viper Red Paint and the pumper has a few additional parts added for more detail. The ladder truck was built by Bob Hellner. The Pumper truck was built by Bob Allmen."
