My pulp/horror funland needed more scenery, and a Ferris Wheel would be a good candidate for imposing terrain.
The kit, from Warcradle Studios, is mostly great. It fits together real well but if assembled straight from the box you would get a static model that wouldn’t turn around.
So I modified it. The seats were easy, as I used plastic rods to anchor the seats to the wheel. Worked real well.To get the wheel to rotate was a little bit tricky, but a sturdy wooden dowel, and some metal washers to keep everything in place, did the thing.
So, here it is. Wheel is turning and seats are swinging. Ready for some action in a game of Pulp Alley, 7TV or Hjärnor.

In these times of isolation me and the gaming group have weekly painting challenges to help us get some motivation in the absence of our ordinary gaming sessions. We each present four different things/groups (each of at least two ordinary minis, a larger mini, terrain piece etc) to be finished in a weeks’ time. Sometimes with a common theme, sometimes without. The others vote which one to do. This was my first week challenge. A bit much to finish in seven days (which is probably why the others voted for it…), but I did it, just.
