Picture of Knex Comet
--This is a post by my 11 year old brother--

A "really cool comet" made of Knex that you can throw like a foot ball outside, or even a Knex flower by taking the rubber band of the tail (if the imagination allows).

24 Tiny connectors
8 Flexible connectors
16 Green 135º pieces
2 White 360º pieces
1 Rubber band

Step 1: First Step

Picture of First Step
Take the white circular piece and attach the eight (8) short connectors to it. On those, attach the eight (8) 135º green pieces.

--and repeat

Now, on ONE of the halves, attach the eight (8) short connectors (as shown in the first two pictures), and then put the two halves together (shown in third picture).

I know I am being picky but this was flagged as incomplete. +Your only instructions were to follow the pictures. +The last step does not get you all the way to the final project.

ummm excuse me he has good instructions
reedz Vynash7 years ago
*sighs* He has changed it a little bit so far, such as added a last step since I commented. I'm sorry for caring enough to want him to improve.
Vynash reedz7 years ago
oh OK thanks for explaining it
reedz reedz7 years ago
Sorry for being like that, but there is pretty much no standard on here anymore.
Yeah, people think that by posting a couple pictures and saying to follow them that we can actually make these things.
Well... you could... it just doesn't look very good as an instructable, maybe a slide-show
Its good enugh for most people to use.
Yeah, but that's not the point. People are constantly posting incomplete instructions and think that it's ok.

I think its fine.
