Over the next few weeks I will be working on a new project!
I'm super excited to for this and can wait to get started... The inspiration for building this model was from seeing a working HO scale version of the Wild Mouse on Miniature Wonderlands YouTube channel, I immediately thought I have to give this a try.
But it has to have an Australian influence, so I decided to recreate the Mad Mouse ride at Luna Park in Sydney... Or Melbourne as they are both similar (kinda). The main reason for choosing the Sydney version was that it was much easier to find reference images online.
I found an awesome website that has a huge library of images showing a big variety of roller coasters around the world, and the Mad Mouse was one of them!
The website is called https://www.coastergallery.com/ and the images are from Joel Rogers.
Hopefully I haven't bitten off more than I can chew, this is going to be quite a challenging project... maybe not as challenging as the escalator but definitely close!
Stay tuned as I will post more updates over the coming weeks 😊
Some final shots of the completed model, I now have a fully functional running Comeng train that I used to catch back in the late 90's.
A quick update on 3D printing the EMU, so far it's going well but the challenges keep coming. Nothing I can't overcome though 😎
