In his quest to become an architect / engineer he has become rather obsessed with knex.

Perhaps unsurprisingly he is rather good at it, his understanding of structures and forces is remarkable.

I'm trying to get a video up on YouTube of his frankly astonishing ball machine which he had modified himself and fixed all the little anomalies he encountered along the way.

Until I get a chance to do that I'll present his 6ft7 ferris wheel (that moves)

Took him just under a day

Astonishing works for this, too! What an amazing machine! He's going to be one incredible architect, or engineer.

I cannot believe how much he's grown. :sigh:

This is amazing!!

I think we should commission him to build our very own secrets mansion in Orlando!

Absolutely brilliant. Can't believe he did all of that in just under a day.

Can you say, "budding mechanical engineer"? I knew that you could. :yes:

Amazing work.

Great work Thomas,

We have a load of Knex but it never gets used, maybe this will make the boys think about using it again,
