The Ferris WheelThe Ferris Wheel

A steam engine made from cardboard, running with proper boiling steam - is that really possible? Oh yes!!!

See for yourself: this model not only looks great, it also works, happily chuff-chuffing away. The boiler, made from an aluminium tin, has a magnetic safety valve. The aluminium fire box underneath holds five tea lights. Both are enclosed in a safety cage made from galvanised wire mesh. The steam is conducted through a closed system of tubes and plastic foil before being emitted through the chimney.

This clever construction keeps cardboard and steam separated with the piston being moved by a bellows made from the finger of a plastic glove.

  • Pre-punched kit with gold printing.
