Poison Ivy

Model Roller Coaster

This model was built for the 2013, Miniature Fantasies Show in Kansas City, MO, March 8th & 8th.  The theme for this bi-annual show was "A Blooming Good Time", so that played into the theme of the model.  I was down on my back and had cancelled my spot as I hadn't built the model, but the day before I stayed up all night and pulled it off, so this model was built in about 12 hours, finishing it at 11 a.m. and then taking it to the show.  They were thrilled that I was able to be in the show and it was a hit.  This was also my shortest-lived model, as I had to take it apart to get it home Saturday after the show ended at 6 p.m.

The model features 3 full drops before any inversions and features the first heart line roll I have attempted.
