Scale Models of Amusement Park / Carnival Rides

Welcome to the world of building amusement park & carnival ride models! I have been building H0 scale rides since 1992. I created this site in 1996, as a place to post information & photos about this great hobby!

Click the Faller and IHC links to view photos & information about scale model kits.


ebay Auction listings for ride kits are featured
on both my Faller page, and my IHC page.


I hope you enjoy your visit and find some useful information. I have just added a "where to start" page, for those of you who have just discovered this great hobby!
