Stirling engine powers Ferris wheel model

Working Stirling engine powers Ferris wheel model
Here is a top-of-the-line desktop toy: a metal Ferris wheel model, powered by a small Stirling engine. It's not exactly cheap, but it sure is nice!

From the mode description:
The Stirling engine's flywheels are connected by a rubber band to four flywheels on the Ferris wheel, powering its rotation. Made in Germany, the kit's parts are made from machine tooled solid brass, stainless steel, and aluminum components on a walnut stained wood base. Ferris wheel: 9" H x 5" W x 4" D. Stirling engine: 5" H x 6" L x 4 1/4"

Here's where you can learn more about this The Stirling Engine Ferris Wheel.

It's a dual cylinder too, it's one of the Böhm Stirling-Technik engines. They also do a rather impressive flame eater engine (HB22) in the shape of a ray gun and 4 cylinder stirling engines.
