Introduction: Super Awesome K Nex Mini Bow!!

In this instructable, I'm going to show you how to make a knex mini bow. This is one of my first instructables, so please go easy on me!! Seriously,I mean it.:P

Step 1: Parts

Be sure to get all of the parts in the picture. Remember, not all of the parts have to be the same color, just the same size and shape of them.

Step 2: The Main Body

Build two of these.

Step 3: Connecting the Two

Follow the pictures on how to connect the two pieces.

Step 4: The Hard Part

Now, somehow stretch the two rubber bands across the wheels to act as a bowstring. Then wrap them around the two rods holding the snowflake piece up like in the picture.

Step 5: Holding the Bow and Firing

Hold the bow as shown in the picture, the arrow (any long rod) goes through the center of the snowflake piece, Pull it back however you like.

It's good because it's small. But how do you do the 4th step?

It's one of the hard steps, and it's hard to explain

author
iamGEO (author)General Eggs2009-07-07

Maybe thats why im asking ==
Is it one long rubber band or is it two? because you said stretch two but i dont see how you can do that ><
do you have more pictures on different angles?

it's two rubber bands right next to each other, wrapped around the same way. sry, the rubber bands look wierd because I liked the look of them.
