Introduction: K'nex - Biplane Instructions

Picture of K'nex - Biplane Instructions

Hey guys and today I bring you something a little bit different. Many years ago I found instructions for a biplane on a website that doesn't exist anymore but at least I did print of the instructions. Several years later I couldn't find them, thinking that I threw them away by accident and that was it. But would you believe it I found them and decided to share it with everyone on instructables.

Also check out my other creations and instructions

Step 1: Parts List

Awesome model! I will have to build this sometime. Favorited and subscribed! :-)

Thanks Inventor, really do appreciate it

You're welcome! BTW, do you still build with K'NEX? It would be awesome to see you post something new!

Well Inventor, I really would like to post something new on Instructables again but I just don't have the time anymore as much I would like to get back into it. I still got all of my K'nex, I wouldn't sell it or throw it away.

Oh, I see.

Awesome build.... though I did not like the idea of cutting 2 rods.

Well Mister, this and the helicopter have the least amount of cut pieces

Dr MonkeyMan (author)2015-02-06

Nicely Done!

Thanks Monkey, any ideas of what you are planning next?

Hopefully a minigun, Gewher 43, M1A1, M1 Garand, Browning M1919, Fg42, Mg42, and DpSh-41 to name a few.

Well Monkey, I really like the list of K'nex idea weapons you have given me since firstly they are all WW2 weapons except for the minigun and secondly I really love WW2 weapons. Good luck building them

Thanks. There's just something about WW2 weapons that just gets me excited.

Looks great!

Thanks Sand

Not going to lie, I've always been a fan of WW1 planes. The only era when the design for planes could differ extremely! Example, Red Barons Triplane. Regardless awesome job!

Thanks Jonny, one my all time favourite planes was the spitfire

Yeah that's pretty sweet! I liked the p38 lightning. WWII had a couple great planes.

And also WWII had many great weapons that made history

I love it! very good looking. I mostly build guns, but this is impressive. I favorited. I don't mean to spam, but could you be my first subscriber? It would mean a lot to me. ;)

Thanks Corgi, I can't see the biplane in your favourites so you might need to try again. I tell you what if you put whichever of my creations you can build in your favourites and do a few reviews, I promise i will subscribe to you. Also would really appreciate if you subscribe to me.

Ok, thanks! Turns out I didn't favorite in the first place. My bad. :)

That's ok, you got it right the second time so thanks

Excellent job zombie, how about adding another two propellers on the wings

Thanks DNTR93, to be fair I have done that before but I prefer to just have one propeller

Ok fair enough, what about adding guns to the biplane

Well anyone could do that if they wanted to or even maybe turn the biplane into a bomber

Zombiekiller-93 (author)2015-02-08

Well I'm confidently thinking that it's something completely new made out of K'nex that we haven't seen yet before on Instructables

myOmy (author)2015-02-07

This looks sick.

Zombiekiller-93 (author)myOmy2015-02-08

Thanks myOmy

Zombiekiller-93 (author)2015-02-07

Ok Mullet, must be some kind of LMG, Ball Machine or ? your building

Zombiekiller-93 (author)2015-02-07

Thanks Mullet, have you been working on any new guns for this year?
