Museum displaying "Great K'nexposition"

(Continued)

Woodward, Okla. — EXCITED FOR EXHIBIT

Overall, Nuse said it has taken him the last 2 months to get all 28 models ready for the museum show.

"I had to get them out of storage, build the bigger models, then test them and fix anything that needed fixing to make sure they would all operate properly," he said.

Nuse said he is excited about being able to exhibit his K'nex creations at the museum.

"This is the first time I've had them all assembled at the same time in about 10 years," he said.  "I had them in my dad's basement as a kid, but when I left the house for college, I had no where to put it all so it all got packed away."

Nuse described being able to display all his models at once as "a long time goal."

"Ever since I was a kid I thought it would be cool to have them all on display," he said.

In addition to making others feel like a kid again as they tour his model amusement park, Nuse said he hopes other youngsters will be inspired by the exhibit.

"I hope it makes kids more interested in doing things that are more creative and something physical rather than playing video games or staring at their iPhones all day,"  he said.  "I think kids have lost track of using their imagination and I hope this inspires some kids to see what they can do when they spend the time and effort on your imagination."
