I did a model of the Raging Bull using some sort of flexible tube, and i put a thin metal wire inside it and bent it out to resemble the Raging Bull, i used wooden rods for supports. It doesn't actually work though.

In case you end up having to build some, I offer info and links to the best modeling sites I have seen. Visit my link below. I will get the coaster tech too once it's out!! Very awesome!

We had to make model coasters in physics last year, Sandusky city schools will do anything to relate education to coasters. I used some clear, flexible plastic tubing and made a life hill and some loops. I dropped a marbel in the start and it ran the course of the ride, it was pretty cool.

There's a company called Faller, who manufacture kits to build rides. Check this link for some of their rides. I built the wild mouse, and it works- you gotta be really patient though!!!
