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

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 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...

Ever read Cell by Stephen King?
Finished it, great book, very violent, the only thing I didnt like was how it ended, it was too...calm, not actiony enough
Can't you just picture all that moving through your city? >: )

SPOILER ALERT!


I hated the ending. Basically what it said was Johnny-Gee was cured.
I already read it, and yeah, its crazy how I can picture these landmarks throughout Massachusetts! I also didnt like how he didnt say anything else about Jordan, Tom, Dan, and Diana, he just left it hanging.
I picture Tom as like, a George Costanzo with a mustache. Huh? Huh?
It was kind of odd that Tom's character was the only one I matched to a real person face, more or less all the other characters were kind of blurs, like looking at people without your glasses on
I think Trainman is seconds away from killing us both. We shall move this to PMs.
lol sure
YES YES YES!!!!!! Exactly what I was thinking!!!
no, but now I will
Oh, ho, ho...Enjoy.
