    I don't know if it's valid, but you should totally enter this into the First Time Authors contest, if you're allowed to.

    He can't. Contests only allow entries of instructables that are published after the contest start date.

    Thank you. I have no idea what the contest is though.

    Well, it ended a few days ago. Besides, it wouldn't have been valid.

    I don't know if it's valid, but you should totally enter this into the First Time Authors contest, if you're allowed to.

    How many pieces is this!!! Great job by the way. :)

    Great job man! I love this ship fighter. OK, I am not trying to offend you or anything, maybe I could even be wrong but isn't it called a tar fighter instead of a star fighter? Now I could be wrong but who knows. I just wanted to give my thought but I could be wrong but I am not trying to correct you or offend you but I am just saying what I think I recall. But anyway, I love the star fighter or (tar fighter) either one is awesome! I especially like the form of it and I think you did a great job!

    So I hope I didn't offend you or anything I am just saying what I think it was. Still great job and keep up your great work

    sincerly, master-splinter306

    Nope, not offended at all. I am pretty sure it is called a Jedi Starfighter (

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jedi_starfighter). But just so I wouldn't involve any copyright issues I decided to make it a generic "knex knight star fighter"

    Yeah, I just tried to look "tar fighter" up, and it didn't work. But, I am sorry for the misunderstanding but I thought it was called a tar fighter, but it wasn't. But great job anyway!

    Wow so you designed all those different parts yourself? That's nice!

    Autodesk Inventor/Publisher. It was good practice for learning the software.

    So, you modeled all the parts and made an assembly? If so sweet! Can I have the files for the knex parts? Or at least the dimensions you used to model them?

    I have inventor as well, do you mind publishing dimensions? Personally I like inventor way more than mlcad. I would appreciate it if you were to give out the part dimensions.

    Unfortunately, due to possible software license and copyright patent issues with K'nex, I do not distribute the files and/or dimensions. Plus, I do not have them recorded anywhere. All dimensions were measured using calipers (0.001 accuracy) and entered directly into autodesk.

    Alrighty then, do you remember the indents, that's the only thing I need.

    Indents? 1 or 2? (2) was obtained by eye ball approximation and what looked right. (1) Was an educated guess combined with measurements. I am sorry but I will not list any other dimention details aside from the image.

    This looks really cool! Thanks for sharing the great instructions!
