what does it shoot and how do you load it?

The Nomlack (author)daredevil4992012-06-13

It fires white rods. You pull back the ram then load a white rod through the front. Then take a picture just like a real camera.

why do i get the feeling you got this idea from asdfmovie lol. great idea though !!! i'l build it tomorrow...

The Nomlack (author)Sharir17012012-01-04

Ive watched all ASDF movies but i dont see how i got it from ASDF. I got the idea from jmm72.

Sharir1701 (author)The Nomlack2012-01-05

i don't remember in which one, but there's a scene where the guy says: "hey man ! check out my new camera" *shoots a pistol* "oh ! that's not a camera..."

The Nomlack (author)Sharir17012012-01-05

Haha i dont remember that one!

james4 (author)The Nomlack2012-06-02

It was in there.Also have you checked out the new ASDF movie 5?

Hello! I am making it! how do you make a half orange connector, or how did you do it?

The Nomlack (author)XxsonicxX2011-07-07

This build does not use orange cut pieces it uses ball joint pieces. You can use cut orange connectors. I use an exacto-knife to cut them.
By the way you really need a strong small band for the mechanism.

Tell me if it works!

I just turned it into a non functional knex gun

rlaxrlax (author)2011-11-13

how do you tape the pieces?????????

The Nomlack (author)rlaxrlax2011-11-16

You pull on the tape from the dispenser, then tear it off, then wrap it around the rod.

Originality at it's best, I never thought to recreate a trick camera with K'nex haha. 5 stars for you!

The Nomlack (author)apples!!!!!2011-04-25

Thanks! will you build it?

apples!!!!! (author)The Nomlack2011-04-28

I might, because this looks cool.

Bommelding (author)2011-02-19

Works great! It shoots so dang far for such a small thing! :o
But getting the white things (which will have the tires around them later on) on the yellow sticks is really hard.
I even swapped the black thingie at the ram's end for an orange connector so more rubber bands could fit on.
Mine has about 30 bands on it now... just because it can't hold any more. It wouldn't break but there just is no more space :o
Its shooting over 40 feet :D

5*

The Nomlack (author)Bommelding2011-02-24

Thanks!

inergy (author)2011-02-06

Mine pierced cardboard!

The Nomlack (author)inergy2011-02-06

Really? That's epic!. Do you like my camera?

inergy (author)The Nomlack2011-02-09

Yeah, I "took my moms picture" on accident.. Yeah I do, it's actually really basic, which makes it even better. I never had the thought to disguise guns into other household objects, now that I've seen this I have had many ideas of disguising.
