Picture of Knet Target

Hey. This is my first instructable! I made a knex target, used for laying down. Piece count included! ENJOY! =D

Look at my new forum, K'nex Builders' Challenge.

Step 1: Piece Count

Ahh... the sacred piece count. Well... here I go...

Orange: 18
Dark Grey: 5
Grey: 3
Red: 2
Yellow: 5
White: 1
Blue 3-D: 15

Green: 9
White: 5
Blue: 7
Yellow: 2
Red: 17
Gray: 2

Blue Spacers: 12

Thats all....
Sorry if it's too much!

Step 2: Basic Target

This is pretty much the target itself. Follow the notes and steps here:

Pic 1: Make this. It is a yellow rod, might I add. 7 orange connectors per side.
Pic 2: Don't mind the gray rod, used as a stand. 4 yellow connector and 5 red rods. Try to get the connectors in that general area.
Pic 3: Clip on the this from Pic 2 as shown.
Pic 4: It is more clearer because I remembered to turn on focus! Silly me! Anyway, This is the same as the third pic but on the other side.
Pic 5: Make these. This is the stand.
Pic 6: Clip on the extra space on the top of the target. Same for the other side.
Pic 7: Make this. Pretty simple.
Pic 8: Clip on the orange connectors to the ends of the gray rods from Pic 5 and 6.
Pic 9: Final Result!

Step 3: WARNING!!

The next step is optional, but highly recommended. It is the main support, making the target heavier, not letting it fly away when shot at. Your choice!

Step 4: Main Support

This is the main support. Sorry for no notes. It didn't work. Just use the instructions!

Pic 1: Make these.
Pic 2: And this.
Pic 3: Other view.
Pic 4: Make this. NOTE: there is only 2 green rods in this picture!!!!!
Pic 5: Attach using 3 blue rods.
Pic 6: Other View.
Pic 7: Attach these parts on the side with no green rods on it. The blue rods should make a line.
Pic 8: Add this chunk of pieces.
Pic 9: And this one.
Pic 10: For this, take the blue rod with the 5 dark gray connectors and a red connector and snap off the red one. Then, click on the blue rod to the yellow connector as shown. Slip the other end of the blue rod through the hole, then clip on the red connector.
Pic 11: Finished product!
Pic 12: To attach, clip on the green rods to the light gray connectors on the target.
Pic 13: Clip on the blue 3-D connectors to the red (it's green in the picture) rods.

Step 5: YAY!

But if it flies away when you shoot it, it's even more fun!

but then you have to get it.

Yeah, exercise. Or you could tie string to it, so when it flies away, you can reel it right back in.

No way I'm firing at this, it'll will snap the green rods in half lol...I rather fire at my knex target holding a piece of plywood :P But still nice target, however I think it might be a little hard to hit though.

thats why its used to test power... AND accuracy while laying down.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-04-19

I dont get it. just shoot at the reds?

yes. if you use a good gun, the green rod snaps off, telling you where you hit.

Interesting... is there a way to interconnect these into an even bigger target? That'd be great... Great instructable great target... even though it didnt stand up to my gun its great =) better then those basic knex targets good job...

Ratchet and Clank (author)mrbox2008-04-18
