Doc's Gilbert Erector 8½ Ferris Wheel Model

Hi folks, Doc here. This is the 8½ set version of the Ferris Wheel; it was the third model we built with my 10 ½ Collector's Set. This one was fairly easy, once I figured out the best method for attaching the spokes (long girders) which support the wheel rims to their brass BT hubs. No problems getting this one to operate smoothly.
