Dan Scheer’s Airplane Ride

March 14, 2014 · by David Gilbert · Amusement Park Rides, Erector Sets, Scheer, Dan

This model was originally constructed as an airplane ride only. The planes were made to give a more realistic aircraft look. A few Mecanno parts were used for the wings and the tail assemblies. Also, I added a few extra features to the model. It was built with spare parts that were stripped clean, primed and painted the various colors that Gilbert used over the years.

Recently, I purchased several plastic seats on eBay. Rather than build another ride structure, I made the seats interchangeable with the airplanes.

My wife, Kathy, gives me much needed help as to what color each part should be painted. Always good to include the spouse!
