Hi all,
i'm a relatively new scroll sawer and my experiences in scroll sawling is just the Eiffel tower which i completed from a brought pattern.

My new project which i have set myself a new project of the london eye which moves. This will require designing, trial and error and maybe using motors for the wheel unless i decide will only move when i spin.

i've come up already with a few designs/patterns to how i'm going to make it however before starting to draw to paper to trial the dimensions i have been searching on wood type and thickness. I 've searched and people use plywood for models especially baltic plywood.
My question is
1. which plywood and thickness would be suitable for this project?
i've used beech plywood at 6mm thickness for the eiffel tower
any suggestions would be greatful as i see this as a long project
Many thanks
Tony
