HTR Build It! Faller Power Tower | Episode 6 | Faulty control box!


Join Hold Tight Riders as we build the Faller Power Tower fairground model (kit 140325) in this brand new series! 

This is a shorter episode than normal due to the fact that we’re experiencing problems with the control box that was supplied with the kit. In this episode we compare the faulty box with the older-style box supplied with a Power Tower we built last year. Faller have offered to send a new box to me, but only if I post the faulty one to them first – something that I am not willing to cover expenses for at this time.

The model is HO/OO scale and includes 427 plastic parts. It is based on the Maurer Sohne freefall tower that was travelled by German showman Schneider between 1998 and 2001.

In episode 5 we thread the string onto the tower and wire up the control box before attempting the first test ride!

Apologies that this episode has taken so long to upload – as you’ll see, we’ve had a few issues in getting the ride to run and are waiting to hopefully receive a replacement control box from Faller – but struggling to contact them.
