Closeup

The white plasic frame of the ferris wheel is about the same thickness as a household match. You can also see the wires running along the inside edges of the ferris wheel supplying power via the brass rivets with holes that support the chairs. The bulb leads are electrically connected via push fit metalrods that push into the roof of the chair and rest inside the holes in the brass rivets. Each chair is made up of 5 plastic parts, 3 metal parts and a bulb.
