So this whirligig I made for the Whirligig Wars competition by Laney Shaughnessy. It resembles an outback sawmill with all the moving parts and features and everything. The inspiration came from a school assignment I did last year on the history of the timber industry in Australia. It was very difficult to build but in the end I got there. Here is the link to the video entry:

Thank you

Very nice with lots of move.

If you can figure that out, you can figure out how to rotate pictures.
