Introduction: K'nex Carousel

This is the k'nex carousel I displayed on the "kermisexpo" at Dordrecht (The Netherlands).

The video didn't go trough editing caus I only have these few seconds of video so far.
There's music playing from underneath it, and if you look closely, you actually see the horses moving.

I'm glad you like it, but at the left side of your keyboard is a button called "Caps Lock" so if the "caps lock" light on your keyboard is lit, please hit that button and disable it.

author

Well I shoudln't say too many i should say there aren't enough good American builders.

There are a lot of good builders all around the world.
If the majority would just stop building "guns".

Klopt helemaal. Trouwens, ga je een handleiding maken hiervan. Het ziet er geweldig uit!

Hij staat nog, dus als ik eens tijd en zin heb kan ik hier en daar wat detailfoto's nemen en een kleine instructie maken.
Maar verwacht die niet te snel.

Agreed. Sometimes I feel guns have taken over instructables. I see something like this and I remember that there are things apart from guns.

Great Job!

that's just harsh

Maybe I should stop looking at the instructables' k'nex forum. Caus the main idea there is "weapons".
There are some good fora where builders from around the globe build wonderfull things.

author
MrSillyGuns made it! (author)MrSillyGuns2010-09-24

well yeah the main idea there is weapons because guns are cool but theres other stuff like cars and stuff like this. most of the time i think its just hat knex gun builders dont know how to build most of the other stuff cause i know i dont know how.

Is that Looping Star I see on the right? :-)

author
floris2burn made it! (author)floris2burn2010-09-30

It's the looping with the animated name in LED's.
I was on that expo with Maxlaam.
His "Big Apple" is on the left hand side of the carousel.

I didn't know maxlaam made big apple. I thought that was someone else. I loved Looping star and here's a classic to sit by it's side.

Shadowman39 made it! (author)Shadowman392010-09-15

It's a bug, some people also can't view larger pictures in Instructables or rate.

When is it gonna get fixed?

author
Shadowman39 made it! (author)Shadowman392010-09-16

One of the admins said it would be a hard bug to fix, so it might take a while. I sure hope it gets fixed soon.
