The commonly named Ferris wheel originated from the Chicago Wheel that was designed by George Ferris Jr. as a centre piece for the World's Fair of 1893 in Chicago USA. The original Ferris Wheel reached a height of 80m however the world record currently belongs to the Singapore Flyer reaching a staggering 165m.
The Metal Earth series are amazing 3D models to build from laser cut steel sheets.
As a souvenir with a difference (or inspiration to save for a world trip!) or just a beautiful object with the satisfaction of knowing you built it yourself, why not start a collection? Incredibly detailed, these fascinating models are definitely a challenge to build. Care and patience are required, but the results are well worth the effort. Long-nosed pliers are also recommended (not included). This one is of medium difficulty, due to the many small pieces and the need to bend them to shape. It takes about an hour to complete.
Recommended for ages 14 and over. Due to their small size, Metal Earth models should be kept out of the reach of children under three years of age.
