Ringling Circus Museum

A custom scale backdrop for the Howard Tibbels Circus Trains exhibit

by SMARTT Inc.

The Ringling Museum selected SMARTT to build a 63 foot long backdrop for their display of handmade circus train miniatures. The client provided a miniature version of their concept built by a Kansas model-maker from HO scale kits. Since the trains are 1:16 scale, the model had to be pantagraphed up and recreated from available materials. Other than a few Plastruct fittings, almost nothing is available in that size so it all had to be fabricated from scratch by SMARTT's talented model shop staff.
