Nope, not quite that ambitious yet

There are two of these on the forum. Homemade, but not from Meccano or Erector...

Haha nope, but Lenn had some neat traps at his place when I visited.

Well, I've finished this little project (video will reveal soon) and now I want to make the big ferris wheel shown on the boxes... Hopefully I still have enough pieces left, but that project will probably take a little bit longer
