Wooden Coaster and Vehicle

About: I'm a 16 year-old guy who loves to build mechanics out of knex. my main interests are ball machines and roller coasters. My real name is Matt and I'm a christian. I live in Australia or more commonly known a...

Hi everyone! I just thought I'd show you my last two projects before I leave for my trip back to Australia. Unfortunately Scorpion's Rock could not be finished on time. However I have been planning for a bigger and better ball machine which I will build as soon as I finish settling into Australia. As some of you might know I'm a missionary in a small country called Ecuador. After twelve years of missionary work my family has decided to finish the missionary term so that I can finish high school in Australia. First My family is travelling up to North Carolina to see some old friends. Then we fly all the way to England and also see a friend in Scotland. We'll then See some more friends in Belgium. After that, we will travel back to England and have a 22 hour trip back to Australia. This doesn't mean that I'm leaving Knex or Instructables. I have already sent the knex so that it will arrive in Australia before I get there and I will have my dad's laptop to borrow so I will be able to post comments as we travel around the world. If you'd like me to post pictures of my trip I will be happy to post them. However I won't be posting any Instructables for at least a month.
The first project is a small wooden coaster called Termite Trouble. The second project is a very realistic car. I tried to make it look as real as possible.

    I really like the steps and the station for the coaster, and the car has got to be in the top 5 most realistic on ibles! You should post information on your travels in a forum topic, because its more like a blog. I like how you made the V8 engine, but I can see all the way through to the seats from inside the bonnet, so if you make another one, then you might want to put a wall there.
    PS. Have a safe trip!
