£ 12.99

Curious Minds Did You Know: The first sketch of a Ferris wheel was drawn on a cocktail napkin at an engineer's banquet in 1891 by George W. Ferris the future inventor of the Ferris wheel.

In the tradition of the tin models that children of 19th Century wealthy families would attach to toy Steam Engines, this amazing cardboard kit from Astromedia allows you to build a beautiful Ferris Wheel that can be paired with either the Astromedia Steam Engine or the Stirling Engine. The model takes about five or six hours to assemble and stands 20cm in diameter when complete.
