Introduction: K'nex F117A Nighthawk

Picture of K'nex F117A Nighthawk

The F117A Nighthawk is a stealth bomber, and is also my favorite jet so I thought it would be awesome to make a k'nex version of this jet.

Step 1: Design

Picture of Design

The F117A Nighthawk is a stealth bomber, and is my favorite jet so I thought it would be awesome to make a K'nex version of it for personal use. I based the design off of this image only (third image found on wikipedia).

Step 2: Mechanism : Trigger

Picture of Mechanism : Trigger

The trigger pull is a very simple mechanism. The marbles lay on the trigger (rod), and when the trigger is pulled out the marbles fall down. This is shown in the video I have added to this intractable.

Step 3: Ammunition : Bombs

Picture of Ammunition : Bombs

I just used Magnetics® marbles as the bombs because they weigh more than normal marbles and drop quicker

Step 4: Mechanism : Chamber

Picture of Mechanism : Chamber

The Chamber holds four bombs total. Two sets of two bombs are released separately so that if the first bomb run fails, the pilot can go for a second round.
