Rafter Blaster is modelcoasters.com’s first XL (extra-large) 1:24 scale model. It is twice the size of our O (1:48 scale) models. Because it is larger and heavier, the model moves a bit more realistically as compared to the smaller 1:48 O-scale models. This model was located at the now closed Roller Coaster Model Museum. It was built to fit the space above the Playtime: Roller Coaster Toy Gallery, which wasn’t practical for displaying any of our Toy Collection. This is an original design and not based on any particular real-life roller coaster.
