Carowinds Scale Model

This is a scale model that one of our fans has shared with us. Be sure to check out his Youtube videos going over the creation and the details of the model.

“This model will sit in a 7.5 foot by 5.5 foot base built by carowinds. The model is built in 4 sections and is halfway complete. The model is in HO scale. I am recreating the model to exact specifications and replicating it exactly as it looked when demolished. I plan to have it 100%finished by the end of May this year and have been working on it since October 2014.”-Joshua A.
