ok yer so I coped it from the instruction booklet, wots your point, it was my first Instructable so i fust wanted to do somethink simple. oh yer its not plagerism because i never said it was mine, it is onle plagerism if you take someone elces work and pass it off as your own, so all of you who made comments about "i got it from the book" get over it, really.
ooh, mr tough guy! i never said it was a bad thing, did i??????

I remember I made on as a kid. But instead of the clockwork thin to propel it, I instead built a little annexe for it to the right hand side and the wheel was locked onto the central spoke (the grey piece through the middle in your photo) so that the spoke and wheel could rotate but not independently of each other., then I added a big wheel also located on the central spoke that was also locked to it. Then I had a rubber band that fitted over the top of it, and went down into the little annexe and went round another wheel, a handle came out of the annexe and as you turned the handle the wheel went around.
