TNKIT entry and FN SCAR H (Now with pictures)

This is my TNKIT entry, an F1 based car. It has built-in suspension (not independent, but on the axle), and realistic features. The last pictures are of my new assault rifle, an FN SCAR replica. The stock is different because of the internal ram mechanism, and it has Ironman rails top and bottom, with strange new rails on the sides, which hold a bipod at the moment. An ironman mag adaption allows for extremely quick mag changing, with the release lever an inch from the trigger at the front of the trigger guard. The flip-up iron sights have been modified since these pictures, and the barrel (area with the bottom rail, not the false barrel at the end) has been shortened by 2 units, making the weapon more realistic and easier to use. Uses lots and lots of y clips and hinges, and requires about 6 cut white rods (can get away with 5). The EGLM fires a large projectlie using a push trigger behind the mag (in front of and below the handle). Also for your enjoyment; my MP5 from May.

The car is brilliant! You should put a lego guy in the chair or something!
knexguy (author)  Lowney6 years ago
I think the Lego guy may look a little small in comparison;  I may try a K'nex man if I ever rebuild.
In addition to making knex bricks that rip off lego, they also made some knex men that ripped off lego minifigures.  I have about 8 of those from Sawblade thrill ride.
 me too

I love the car. Scar looks pretty good.
Woah... Thats pretty sweet... That car... its... its... its incredible! Great work! The gun looks real nice too. Metallics make it that much better too :-D
knexguy (author)  I_am_Canadian6 years ago
Unfortunately its awesomeness doesn't save it from camera problems, which have led to me being disqualified from TNKIT. Thanks anyway though.
cj81499 knexguy6 years ago
your not disqualified
knexguy (author)  cj814996 years ago
Yeah, because I hadn't noticed -_-. Keep it quiet though.

You got disqualified?

Goes off to have a word with Viccie...
knexguy (author)  I_am_Canadian6 years ago
Yay! Probably won't make much difference.
Haven't heard for Viccie, but having quite a discussion with DJ. What a guy...
knexguy (author)  I_am_Canadian6 years ago
I don't understand what you mean about the discussion with DJ. Thanks anyway though; I think Viccie is blanking me and anyone who tries to argue my case. I haven't heard from him either.
Mkay. I just asked him once more - I'll let you know what he says. When I asked him before DJ responded saying it was unfair and rubbish like that, so we've had a bit of a chat.
knexguy (author)  I_am_Canadian6 years ago
DJ can be a bit... simple like that sometimes.
follows to help even though im not big on this guy
knexguy (author)  knexsuperbuilderfreak6 years ago
Don't bother, it won'h help. Round 2 has started already.
yeh now i see it
follows to help too.
If you hadn't been disqualified, you could have entered your FN SCAR as your R2 entry.
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio6 years ago
That was the plan.

Really good, the car is amazing and so is both the guns, you should really post some of the things you make. Add some good guns to the rather decreasing amount of good knex instructables
knexguy (author)  bruce9116 years ago
I'll probably post the SCAR, the MP5 is long gone.
Good news then I just remade the MP5 and have already taken all the pics needed for instruction... mind if I post???
knexguy (author)  bruce9116 years ago
Go for it; my pin broke with 3 bands, even when superglued. Did you keep the rail for the pin?
sprout_less6 years ago
i think the car is the best
knexguy (author)  sprout_less6 years ago
Out of all the things here? I would say the SCAR is more functional, but I definitely spent the most time on the car.
nutty guy6 years ago
have you taken the scar apart? because if you haven't can you show me a pic of the handle because I would like to try it on my scar because I'm trying to make my scar even better
knexguy (author)  nutty guy6 years ago
No, I haven't. Still the handle is the worst part of it, it bends when you tilt the gun on it's side (though the gun is heavier than a K'sayer), the only good things about it are the realistic angle and the comfort.
can I have a pic because I think it would work well with my scar if I change it to fit and my scar is lighter than yours I think
knexguy (author)  nutty guy6 years ago
Probably is, I'm posting it at some time but it will take a while, I have nowhere near enough green rods to build another one (and I have a lot of green rods)!
cool bas36 years ago
post the fn scar please!!!
nutty guy6 years ago
the car is so cool
knexguy (author)  nutty guy6 years ago
Unfortunately, I have been disqualified for being late :(.
You should have tried starting it when round 1 was actually announced.
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio6 years ago
I did. But I had trouble with posting it, and I was away for 4 weeks of the competition.
You still had an extra month with that. Surely you could fix it within a month?
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio6 years ago
Yes, but my entry took me 3 weeks building, tweaking, and debugging at the same time as coursework.
Knarez6 years ago
It looks like mine lol.
knexguy (author)  Knarez6 years ago
A little I suppose, but it's bigger and different in many ways.
Cool, both look good.

no pics!
knexguy (author)  J Moneyman6 years ago
They're up now.
knexguy (author)  J Moneyman6 years ago
Well f**king done.
Um... How hard is it to find a few batteries??
some cameras have special batteries.... and some people don't use many so they don't buy many
knexguy (author)  shadowninja316 years ago
Pics are up.
knexguy (author)  Killer~SafeCracker6 years ago

knexguy (author)  Killer~SafeCracker6 years ago
I'll have to buy them.
nutty guy6 years ago
come on I want to see if you have out done my scar
knexguy (author)  nutty guy6 years ago
Pics are up.
knexguy (author) 6 years ago
(Lazy) EDIT: I have no batteries for my camera at the moment, so I cannot upload pictures. My entry for the TKNIT will be late, due to this. I have spoken to Viccie on the TKNIT thread.
I can't wait for pics!
knexguy (author)  DJ Radio6 years ago
They're up.
nutty guy6 years ago
