3D model description

Model Ferris wheel to be powered by a steam engine like a Mamod SE3 or similar.
The gear ratio takes the steam engine from 1500-2500rpm to 2-5rpm for a realistic speed. Oil the bearings even if the are sealed, this will give less friction for the engine to drive. Music is supplied by a micro sd decoder board. power is from either a 5v micro usb phone charger or a 3x aa 4.5v power box.
