My own version of the Loop-O-Plane fairground ride, based off a design by Markku Jääskeläin! It is operated by a wheel at the back and it really folds up for road use!

Excellent build! And props to you for making the whole thing fold up for transportation. Not sure if I'd want to have a go in one of those...

Very nice recreation of this fair ride except...

No doors! It'd look better and more believable it you worked in a cage, grill, or mesh-like element. It could be clipped onto both sides of each ride cockpit using 1x1 clip plates (or something else depending on what door you use).

Safety first!

Bonus points for the transport breakdown feature. Very novel.

Nice ride, but I loved to see more from your houses in the background.  :classic:
