    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

    Amazing!!!









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    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.

    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.

    Amazing work.
