Introduction: Knex - A10 Thunderbolt (Warthog)

I've had the A10 for a while now, but didn't really have the time to make an instrucable for it until now. So here it is :)

We will need the following parts:

Connectors:
-White: 5  
-Yellow: 15
-Green: 1
-Red: 9
-Orange: 34
-Dark Gray: 9
-Light Gray: 2
-Tan: 18

Rods:
-Gray: 10
-Red: 2
-Yellow: 26
-Blue: 13
-White: 16
-Green: 12

Step 1: Create the Upper Part of the Fuselage

For this airplane, the fuselage and the cockpit will be the most difficult parts. So if you can get through those steps, then you're pretty much all set.

Step 2: Create Lower Part of Fuselage

The lower part of the fuselage is a little more complicated. I hope you can see everything.

By the way, for the red connector near the right end, don't connect it's middle socket to the bottom gray rod. Just connect to the two gray rods on the side.

Step 3: Connect the Upper Fuselage to the Lower Fuselage

Connect the bottom gray rod to the two yellow connectors, connect the two gray rods on the side to the two gray connectors, and connect the orange connector to the yellow rod.

Step 4: Create the Nose and Cockpit


Step 5: Connect the Nose to the Fuselage

This is a little tricky. I suggest connecting the bottom part first, and then working your way up to the cockpit.

Step 6: Create the Wings and Connect Them to the Fuselage

Alright we're finally through with the difficult parts. The rest will be pretty easy.

Step 7: Create the Engines and Connect Them to the Fuselage


Step 8: Create the Tail and Connect It to the Fuselage


Step 9: The Completed A10 Thunderbolt

The end product. Be careful it's a little fragile :)

Awsome! I like the circular engines round the back, they really up the looks. Do you have metallics? This would look epic in mettalics.

iceninja07 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-15

Yeah it would look pretty good with metallic, but I don't have any.

~Aeronous~ (author)iceninja072010-06-16

iceninja07 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-16

Well you can try ebay

author
~Aeronous~ (author)iceninja072010-06-18

Hm...I dont realy know of any other places. You can try googling it, but it might not be that reliable.

author
~Aeronous~ (author)iceninja072010-06-19

Talk about reliable, I've been scammed on the internet like 10 times losing a rough total of $2,000.

author
iceninja07 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-22

Wow that's crazy. I was scammed once for $50 using Google shopping. So now I just use amazon, ebay, and some well-known sites.

author
~Aeronous~ (author)iceninja072010-06-23

I almost got scammed on ebay, and the guy almost got away with it.

I like how you set out the pieces, that really helps people who don't know how many pieces, and if they have enough.
Me, personally, i have enough to make at least 20 of these

I got the perfect planes for K'NEX. The F-117, the F-4, B-52, C-17 Globemaster II, and last but not leazst the B-1. I know it is a lot of planes, but not all of them have to be made. Would be awesome tho see the B-52 and the F-4 out there. Great plane. All your planes seem to be awesome.

...Next? AC130 and Harrier! think "Call of Duty 4 Plastic Warefare"

author
iceninja07 (author)joshualater2010-07-30

The Harrier is a good candidate :)

author
Smasher555 (author)joshualater2010-07-30

Hehe, Call of duty 4 Plastic Warfare. lol

author
Smasher555 (author)2010-07-30

joshualater (author)2010-07-26

Wow man, you really got some talent with these. Keep up the good work! you really do amazing jobs with these, low pieces + looks like the real deal = awesome! your f-22 was by far my favourite though.

Nice! I like the a10 alot. Too bad it does not have the gatling cannon in the front, though.

author
iceninja07 (author)TheChemiker2010-06-12

I thought about that too, but then the gun is so small that you can't really distinguish it with knex. I could make it really big, but then it wouldn't look right.

author
TheChemiker (author)iceninja072010-06-12

Yes, or you could scale up the whole model, but that would be a whole new model.

author
~KGB~ (author)2010-06-12

amazing! i really love your planes! btw, could you make an ac-130? 5*

author
iceninja07 (author)~KGB~2010-06-12

lol I'll think about it. I was planning on making more fighter jets first.
