Introduction: Model D Splodies

Picture of Model D Splodies

I really wanted to post something so I came up with a new splody grenade. I also came up with a super splody grenade that expands off of my idea which is really devastating when it "a splodes"!! Thanks to the splodies flinging power it will launch the basic frag connectors quite a ways too!
Oh yeah PM if you wish to collaborate and add any other variations or help by making the full model of the D8 Suplody.

I'm starting my new campaign for seeing who the best knexers are by seeing who is willing to add this list so please do the same with your instructables or feel the shame of not being honest...yup wether you think so or not you aren't going crazy it's your conscience that's bothering you so post this exact same thing (or slightly modified paragraph) so that it may spread.
Started by TheDunkis

D8 Suplody
-Can have a lot of shrapnel
-Has a pretty good blast radius
-Shoots in almost every direction
-Good for placing as a mine (tie a string at the top then just pull over for an easy set explosion)

-Difficult to construct
-May be very unstable depending
-Hard to throw

Step 1: Simple Model D Spoldy

This is my favorite version of splodies I came up with myself.
1. I'd say it's easy but it can take a little finger dexterity to make these. If you have trouble with this step then I do not recommend you make these types of grenades.
2. Slip on either a silver space on each green rod or 3 blue spacers on each. Silvers are obviously alot easier
3. Now you just keep slipping in as many spacers as you want to complete it. Blues are a little easier to insert as they are skinnier and it gives you more sprapnel. For bonus shrapnel you can fill in between the spacers with more green rods if you make enough room.

Now you're done! Simply toss and watch the pieces fly every where! Be careful not to toss at someone's face as these can be pretty dangerous depending on the type of rubberband you use.

Step 2: Model D8 Super Splody

Now these are the beasts of splody grenades. It combines the power and shrapnel of splodies with the basic frag grenade's ability to hold a lot of pieces together. You can customize these just as much as the simple D Splodies!
1. It starts with the same process as simple splodies.
2. For lack of pieces I used only a green rod in between but for better results use the Model Ds from the last step. Make either 4 or 8 model Ds and add red connectors to each end. Also grab 2 white snowflakes.
3. Now add them all to the snowflakes at each end.
4. Your finished product. Once again for lack of pieces I only added 4 splodies hence the D4(r) name (r meaing rods instead of any spacers) but 8 would obviously be a lot better and with spacers.
Once again just toss and whitness the mayhem. Just make sure you can find all the pieces :p and as with the simple version handle with caution and definently don't throw this at someone's face. (trust me I still have a scar...from the splody and the person)

Like I mentioned earlier I don't have many free pieces left so once some of them do come available (or if I get some more) I'll update the instructable. I might also turn the super splodie into some sort of rocket and make a rocket launcher or maybe just a simple mortar to with it. ;)
Edit: Wow it may be a little more difficult than I thought making this over and over again if you only use green rods and no spacers. I tried it again a different way (not a good idea) where I had all the splodies on one snowflake and red connectors on the other end putting on the second snowflake and I ended up setting one off when trying to connect it. And guess what happened after that one went off? The whole thing did! Just imagine the destructive power if 8 went off. And yeah it hurt a little. I only wanted to post this to mention one new idea I got from this experience. A new sort of knex mine! Think if you kick this over it's going to have consequenses. Also you could probably put more than one either connected somehow or just near eachother in the same area and it would be like a mine field each one setting the next one off if it works well. I might just use these as targets for shooting practice just to see them "a splode" when I hit them!

This is cool but, i had an idea like this in 2007 and i came up with these, i was to young to open a ibles account so when i was old enough i opened one, i was going to post this then i saw urs, you took the idea outta my head. I had this idea way back before this. Nice Idea (I say that because i came up with it)

mettaurlover (author)2010-08-13

*has made the D8 with three greens covered in spacers between each set of oranges and 8 sets of oranges* NOT a good idea to do what I did. Mounted it on a reverse ramrod gun, ended going up ten feet and exploding HARD.

TheDunkis (author)mettaurlover2010-08-13

Ha nice.

mettaurlover (author)TheDunkis2010-08-13

Kinda hurt from that range, but it sent shrapnel EVERYWHERE. Still looking for some of it, actually.

runthunter246 (author)2009-03-29

i like i like i like i like i like i like this alott. its like a pocket grenade

prodo123 (author)runthunter2462010-06-02

Do you wanna? it splodes in your pocket.

TigerNod (author)2009-07-21

Cool, I'll mention this when I'm finished with my sidearm. Btw, I added it to the We love splodies group.

DJ Radio (author)2008-07-31

I like this but this is difficult to construct making me give it a 1.5. sorry. Cheer up, at least this wasn't higher than other ibles

TheDunkis (author)DJ Radio2008-07-31

Meh no's still rated higher than yours after all >_>

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2008-07-31

my grenade!? I don't have a grenade!

The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2008-08-26

your 'ibles he means

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2008-08-26


The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2008-08-27

hes just kidding, you are a good builder!

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2008-08-27

i guess

daelans (author)DJ Radio2009-05-28

was this whole converse about you or TD? hehe, imagine if his name was sam or sumtin... sTD... lolz right there man.

yerjoking (author)The Jamalam2008-10-27

I don't think he was kidding...

The Jamalam (author)yerjoking2008-10-27

radio is good!

yerjoking (author)The Jamalam2008-10-27

Well yeah but he spams my orange board with his guns and spamms my entry, and rates TD's grenade 1.5 when this is an amazing grenade, its abit annoying tbh. I mean fair do's he is alot better now he has more knex.

The Jamalam (author)yerjoking2008-10-27

well, tell him not to. he is great when you get to know him, just talk to him.

Bartboy (author)The Jamalam2008-10-30

hes a good knexer, but not a good intstructables member

The Jamalam (author)Bartboy2008-10-31

hes good at both

Bartboy (author)The Jamalam2008-10-31

no, he spams a lot and is annoying. He is also rude, I am not saying hes rude to me, ut hes rude to a lot of people.

yerjoking (author)Bartboy2008-10-31

And rates things 0.5, and complains about pic quality.

Bartboy (author)yerjoking2008-10-31

well a lot of people do.

TheDunkis (author)Bartboy2008-10-31

And I agree... I have nothing against radio...that isn't his own fault.

yerjoking (author)TheDunkis2008-10-31


yerjoking (author)The Jamalam2008-10-27

Fair enough, btw any new plans for guns?

GingerDann (author)TheDunkis2008-10-04

To TheDunkis I Am Currently Working On A Knex Mortar. Am I Allowed To use a modifidied version of this weapon as ammo? W/b ASAP. From GingerDann.

TheDunkis (author)GingerDann2008-10-04

Go ahead I really want a motor for these. I have an idea for the mod too. I can't wait to see it!

runthunter246 (author)2009-03-29

DUNKIS THAT SMALL D ONE IS AWESOME!!!. i have a spring loaded grenade coming soon. it has like a ten foot blast radius and shoots the pieces off FAST.

yerjoking (author)2008-10-27

I can make the D8 thingy easily, it takes about 5 mins if that, and I can put them together quickly, its easy!

Shadow64 (author)2008-06-10

I have a better and more compact vesion\/ Also i came up with this vesion of splodie before you :p sry

TheDunkis (author)Shadow642008-06-10

Do the red connectors stay together? The connectors on mine get flung from the force of the splodies. Also mine isn't ment to be compact. I designed it to be more like a big bomb-ish like weapon than something you'd carry with you. Also do you mean the green rod splody? God I wish people payed more attention to what I typed. That's what it's there for. I mentioned I only used these types of splodies because I ran out of my own model Ds. I know those simple green rod ones were found by someone else. Also my big splody was ment to use 8 not 4. I'm working on making a smaller version that will still be just as good. Please read the entire thing next time.

Shadow64 (author)TheDunkis2008-06-10

ye the red connector stay together i made it like that to keep it compact i find that the shrapnel doesnt have much of an affect so instead of throwing one of your things , i would rather throw 3 of mine. reading though again i did notice that it was your design, also is 50ft with 1 rb good for a sniper?

TheDunkis (author)Shadow642008-06-10

Yeah I'm planning on making something to launch this thing because I found that it's just not the most reliable thing to throw. It's like throwing an overfilled water baloon if you've ever tried that... And then yeah I'm researching for a more compact design but also my simple mD splodies can carry quite a bit of shrapnel in the same package. 3 blue rings equal 1 silver so that's 6 around the green rods on the oranges right there. Then You could slip in at least 6 more so you have 12 pieces on one piece of grenade.

The Jamalam (author)TheDunkis2008-08-26

use the hole in the center of one of the snowflakes, stick a grey rod on, a few spacers on that, then use an orange connector as a firing bolt

yerjoking (author)The Jamalam2008-10-27

I made something like that, and I could put a trigger on, but it'd be a block, I could try a true sometime though.

I_am_Canadian (author)Shadow642008-06-11

That looks cool. Post in a forum!

shadowninja31 (author)2008-08-25

wow... Thats cool. it takes time to build it with out it blowing up. +5*

TheDunkis (author)shadowninja312008-08-25

Yeah. The small ones are fun. The big one takes time and some ninja hands but once you make it you have a very destructive weapon. I don't even have enough pieces to make the bigger one on each slot or at least with spacers but it was scary just the way it was.

shadowninja31 (author)TheDunkis2008-08-25

im gonna try to make a c4 like thing out of the small types. the small ones are cool!

TheDunkis (author)shadowninja312008-08-25

Yeah thanks. I look forward to it!

shadowninja31 (author)TheDunkis2008-08-26

yeah. it might take time though because im busy this week

Adrian.16 (author)2008-08-24

Nicely made instructible, 5 rating from me

King_Banana (author)2008-07-31

im gonna rebuild my bazooka (it uses big air ball tower tubing so either but the set or get it off if u wanna build it when i get it posted

KyleKnex (author)2008-06-22

awesome! I threw it at my couch and hit me it hurt because I put like 5 rubber bands on it

TheDunkis (author)KyleKnex2008-06-22

I know they can get pretty fun. It actually scares me to make a full super splodie because if one goes off...they all do and it hurts pretty bad. I chucked the big one in a tall dirty laundry basket and looked down at it to see it blow up and a couple pieces shot directly up and one hit me right in the eye...they can be pretty dangerous.

KyleKnex (author)TheDunkis2008-06-28

me 2 but i hit my couch

TheDunkis (author)KyleKnex2008-06-28

yeah. I can't wait to turn one into a rocket. I've had ideas and made a prototype rocket out of one and then I'm hoping to make some sort of mortar so these would be awesome to use in a knex war.
