Introduction: Project X4 XPLODER Mini K'nex Hand Grenade

Trainman's first bomb - a small but effective grenade that explodes upon impact, showering the area with spacers. And only nine* pieces means it's the first really practical lightweight grenade!

Pieces:
3 Red Rods
1 Red Connector
3 Orange Connectors
2 Gray Connectors

AND...
Rubberbands
2 Black Y-Connectors
Various Spacers (9 Gray or 27 Blue or anything in between)

It also comes with a safety lock!

*Not including ammo

Step 1: The Body, Part 1

Only Trainy can turn 9 pieces into so many steps...


Build the first part of the body and set it aside.

Pieces:
1 Red Rod
1 Red Connector
2 Gray Connectors
Total: 4 Pieces

Step 2: The Body, Part 2

The second half. Build and attach as shown.
2 Red Rods
3 Orange Connectors
Total: 5 Pieces

Step 3: Applying the Rubber Bands

Here we place the rubber bands on the grenade.

Pieces: Rubber bands (Not too many, 4 maximum)

Step 4: Priming the Grenade and Usage

Here we will add the spacers and lock the grenade into grenade mode.

To do so, add spacers, place a Y-Connector onto the designated area, then place a second Y-Connector right behind the first - but DO NOT SNAP IT IN!!! Place it in as gently as possible. To lock it, twist the black Y-Connector like shown. To put the grenade onto Exploding Mode, place the Y-Connector upright.

Then Throw... and Duck...
