Introduction: Knex Hawk-Crossbow

My first instructable!
I made a nice crossbow that I decided to post.
It shoots accurate, and range is about 7 to 10 METERS (i don't use feet, I'm from Holland)
NOTE: AS THIS IS MY FIRST INSTRUCTABLE, I CAN HAVE MADE SOME MISTAKES IN THE PICTURES, IF THERE IS A MISTAKE, IT WILL BE NOTED ON THE PICTURE, SO BE AWARE
have fun building, don't forget to rate and comment
I hope you like it!

Step 1: Parts List

The pieces you need are:
NOTE: THESE ARE FOR BOW, NOT THE AMMO, AND I DID NOT COUNT THE ELASTICS
I swapped out most rare pieces for not rare ones the most I could.
rods:
Green: 53
White: 36
Blue: 23
Yellow: 3
Red (mine are sometimes orange): 10
connectors:
Dark gray (half orange): 42
Light gray (V-like): 6
Red (mine are sometimes gray too): 27
Green: 18
Yellow (half moon, mine can be orange, too!): 67
Orange (mine can be black/dark gray): 19
White (round): 2
other:
Tan clip: 2
Y-connector: 1
Blue spacer: 2
Total: 291

Step 2: The Handle

this is the handle
1: what you are making
2: make TWICE
3: add blue rods
4: add other plate of the ones you should have maked two of
5: make, easy
6: get
7: put the blue rod you just grabbed in on the half moon connectors like this
8: attach the pice of pic 5 on the blue rod
9: an other view
10: get
11: attach
12: different view
13: get
14: attach first three corner cons on the blue rod shown
15: different view
16: attach the other corner cons
17: get
18: done, yay!

Step 3: The Trigger

O.K., handle made, now the trigger!
1: what you are making
2: make all you see
3: make, too
4: attach
5: put blue rod in
6: put yellow rod with orange con in
7: put 2 more orange cons on
8: different view
9: what you are making next
10: make
11: make, the black rod is a white (but it's in metallic style)
12: make
13: put it in
14: put more dark gray cons on the blue rod
15: attach
16: get this again
17: put the blue spacers on the yellow rod
18: attach the thing you had finished on pic 15
19: different view
20: put more dark gray cons on the yellow rod
21: done, yay!

Step 4: The Barrel

Now this is a boring step, but it is essential, so here we go:
1: what you are making
2: get these
3: make this FOUR TIMES!!!!
4: make this, too
5: add blue rods to the first layer
6: add second layer
7: add third  layer
8: add fourth and fifth layer
9: get these ready
10: we will use only these gray cons for now
11: put them on, you should have eight left
12: get those
13: put them on like so
14: get these
15: on the BACK, put it like so, you should keep another one (the blue rod with 3 gray cons on it) next to you!
16: different view
17: get that pile of rubbish :)
18: put two blue rods on the place shown
19: put gray cons on the rods you just added
20: this is where you put the other blue rod with 2 gray cons on, and it shows you how the bottom of the front SHOULD look by now
21: different view
22: fore grip make
23: different view
24: put it on like so
25: different view
26: done, yay!

Step 5: The Forebarrel

this is easy! just 4 things to make:
1:what you are making
2:make
3:attach
4:done! easy, and still yay!

Step 6: The Wings

another, quite boring step:
1: what you are making
2: make, the orange rods are red ones (mine are orange)
3: different view
4: get and put near you
5: make
6: different view
7: inside view
8: end view
9: attach
10: put gray cons on
11: done, yay!

Step 7: The Front Bar

almost the last building piece! an easy task !
1: what you are making
2: make
3: different view
4: make too
5: different view
6: attach
7: done, yay!

Step 8: The Odd Bits

last building! and very easy!
1: just make and connect, done, yay! that was not so hard right?

Step 9: Assembly

O.K., on to finishing it! time to assemble!
1: all pieces together
2: get the handle (with white rod!) and trigger
3: get these off (keep them close though!)
4: add handle to trigger
5: put these back. READ THE NOTE! IMPORTANT!
6: now you need the white rod from the handle, so get it
7: put it in like so
8: lock it in
9: you should have this now
10: get the barrel
11: just put it on, not too hard
12: close up of the connection of the barrel and trigger
13: get the forebarrel and front bar
14: just put the forebarrel on, not hard
15: take these off the front bar, keep them close!
16: put it in like so
17: like this
18: different view
19: put the stuff back on
20: this is how it should look like
21: another view
22: get the wings
23: attach the wings
24: get the odd bits
25: put on
26: put on
done, yay!

Step 10: Ammo, Loading and Firing

this step shows how the ammo is made, how to load and how to fire:
1: this is the ammo, make, if you want to shoot
2: the elastics
3: to make the main elastic, grab 3 smaller ones
4: put two of them like so
5: then get them like so
6: and pull
7: put another one like so on it
8: and pull again
9: grab two small elastics
10: put one on each side like so
11: get this one
12: remove this part from the wing, also on the other side
13: put in on it like so
14: and on the other one too, this is the result, put it back on the wings
15: to load, simply pull the main elastic back, and put it behind the orange cons
16: make sure you can see between the elastic and the white cons, otherwise it won't fire
17: put ammo in, then pull trigger for destruction
NOTE: NEVER AIM AT HUMANS, ANIMALS, OR THINGS YOU DON'T WANT DAMAGED. I DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT ANYONE DOES WITH MY CROSSBOW
18: the end! I hope you like it, comment weak spots or things that can be done better, and happy hunting!
