Ken Raiteri's Ferris Wheel Models

Ken writes: "The Ferris Wheel must be my favorite theme for construction toys. Attached are some photos of various ferris wheels in my collection. One is the recent Erector wheel and one is a (non-metal) Fishertechnik set. The older wheel is made from a No.8 Constructioneer set that I recently acquired. After adding a replacement power cord, the 'Wasp' motor works like a champ. The larger one is made entirely from the Eitech 155 Eiffel Tower set (minus the main axle which I had to borrow from Erector). There were no pieces left to make cars."
