Introduction: K'nex Big Double Rainbow

This is a double rainbow that I made out of K'nex. It has no orange on it because I didn't have any orange tabbed connectors. But still I think this looks good. You can switch out the yellow connectors with orange tabbed connectors at the second row from the bottom. The entire thing is actually two identical flat rainbow layered together with blue rods. Good luck and have fun building :)

Step 1: Part's List

First thing's first.

Parts list:

Connectors:
38 - Red three solt connectors
38 - Green four slot connectors
38 - Yellow five slot connectors (or 76 if you don't have the orange tabbed connectors)
38 - Blue 3d connectors
72 - White eight slot connectors
36 - Purple 3d connectors
38 - Orange tabbed connectors (five slot)

Rods:
230 - Green rods
256 - White rods
22 - Black rods (White rod length)
44 - Blue rods

Total: 850 pieces
