Very nice and very detailed.

Wrong color, though ;)

When I was much, much younger I spent a great amount of time building things with a toy called an Erector Set. This model very closely resembles my old Erector Set but there is no way that set could have made something as nice looking and, I imagine, as mechanically operational. Very nice.

Yep, I had an Erector Set, too. As I recall, thought, it was a fairly basic one that didn't have a lot of the really cool features, and it didn't take me long to lose a lot of the tiny nuts and bolts. I used to drool over the annual A.C. Gilbert catalog that featured the top-of-the-line Erector Sets, along with American Flyer S-gauge trains!

If your Erector Set structure stayed together longer than 4 hours, you were instructed to call a doctor.
