Model Builders Show in Madison, WI.
Johnny Ripp caught up to Circus Model Builder, Steve Flint, this past weekend at a Circus Model Builders show in Madison, Wisconsin. Here is history in the making as Steve has his entire Sparks Circus 1/2" scale model train set-up in it's entirety. Stretching "As Far as the Eye can See", his 16 flatcars, 6 stock cars and two engines stretch out forty feet ( times ) two seperate tracks.

I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
