As you can see, there are many small parts, so thework was quite nerve racking. However, working on this was verydifferent from my usual work, so I was able to learn a lot and had fundoing it. The final product turned out to be gorgeous workmanship Ithink. All the wheels are functional and rotate, so you can enjoyplaying with them as well. All the gondolas are boxed.
