Introduction: K-nex Mortar

Picture of K-nex Mortar

I was looking at the other K-nex weapons and thought why not make my own so here it is

Step 1: The Parts

The pieces really important so don't forget to put them on. (lol)

Step 2: Creat the Base & Suport

after you have created them snap em together (the white stick goes to the top partof the red).

Step 3: The Launcher's

Next snap the grays on to the suports. And put the black things on.

Step 4: The Projectile

I havent tested on it much but I think that it goes farther with the one of black pieces on the opposite snowflake thing.

meh, its very similar to my artillery cannon
but mine doesnt fire coneectors,

still cool tho, but have a look at mine also.

it's not that big

i agree with kaerius........... they arent similar even remotely

Jimpiedepimpie (author)flamer6002009-07-04

6srd7 (author)flamer6002009-06-13

You could try using the orange connectors, they will likly work nice.

quesoman (author)2009-04-08

This thing is really fun in a Knex War! I just camp near the enemy base and then just shoot until ammo is up! Got 3 kills last time i did that :D.

bedbugg2 (author)2007-06-25

hey! check out my splodies grenade on youtube this pairs up great with it! i popped it on the top of the projectile then fired it and it exploded in mid air and smashed 2 of my lightbulbs lol

TJS (author)bedbugg22007-06-27

that was clever lol

TheDunkis (author)TJS2008-01-03

very clever...seriously clever way to make us laugh anyways...i wish i had the pieces to make a splodies...i heard they are pretty much the best grenades and the way he makes it sound can be adapted for many weapons like this one

ryan101 (author)2007-07-19

Very cool!

wussap (author)2007-07-10

great knex weapon, but poor spelling

T-man (author)2007-06-28

what is this

GreekGuy (author)2007-06-21

looks weird lol, but still cool

some dude (author)GreekGuy2007-06-21

thanks for the tip. I just started and I need lots of help.

ricky0207 (author)some dude2007-06-22

if you want help then: make a better frame, add blue rings on the middle shaft (to get some shrapnal!) sorta make it look more like a cannon/mortar hope it helps

nice idea!!

Easy Button (author)2007-06-22

this is fun to use

Easy Button (author)2007-06-22

how does the projectile lock in?

some dude (author)Easy Button2007-06-22

push it all the way down and then twist it unil The little white poles snap unter the blue connector
