SketchUp 3D Challenge #173 - Ferris Wheel

Monday, 15 April 2013 - Thursday, 25 April 2013

The first wheel to be called a Ferris wheel was designed and built by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. for The Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Sadly, he died of typhoid fever at age 37, just three years after the wheel was constructed. In 1906, after being part of the St. Louis World's Fair, the wheel was blown up with dynamite in a controlled demolition. Since then, the Ferris wheel has been a popular attraction at many fairs and parks all around the world.

For this challenge you are free to model an existing Ferris wheel or design one from the ground up using your imagination. Feel free to push the boundaries to come up with something completely unique.

Standard Participation Rules apply. Thanks to DalexD for the great suggestion.
