Introduction: The Tornado 480 Command V2

Check my H.A.W.C Version 10.0 too!

This is my first ever: 16-shot, preload-every-shot, moderate range minigun!
It's one of my sweetest looking guns because it really looks like an actual minigun!
The only negative is that the reload system takes a very long time to well.. reload, duh!
The range is about 45 ft with good quality rubberbands that are double-folded.

Weight: 1.02 kg
Length: 71 cm

Pros:
-16 shots
-pretty strong
-two handles
-awesome looks
-16 shots per 5 seconds

Cons:
-the shooting top is a bit flimsy
-long reload time

You likey?
So go build it!

Step 1: Parts List

Rods:
-14 greys
-4 reds
-52 yellows
-35 blues
-116 whites
-158 greens + 16 greens

Connectors:
-65 oranges
-60 yellows
-84 grays
-5 light grays
-17 whites
-13 greens
-28 reds
-22 dark blues
-43 purples

Exotics:
-4 tan clips
-16 ball joint click-ins
-8 small gear wheels (the grey ones)
-16/20 gray spacers
-5 blue spacers

Other things needed:
-16 folded-up rubberbands

Got the pieces?
let's move on then, shall we?

Step 2: The Trigger Pusher Plus the Front Handle

This part is to pull the block trigger small guns, and to have a grip on the front.

Step 3: Bi-pod

This part is to help it stand stable when you put it down.

Step 4: Rear Handle

This part is to have a steady grip on the gun

Step 5: Front

This part is to hold the gatling part in place so it will not demolish itself by spinning without the support.

Step 6: The Engine and the Engine Support

This part is to hold the engine in place which lets the gatling part turn.

The engine comes with the Starburst Spinner set.

Step 7: The Gatling Part

This part is the spinning part which makes the small guns shoot.
pic 6-11: build the part 8 times.

Step 8: Assembly

The pictures speak for themselves...
if you have a problem, contact me on my orangeboard.

Step 9: Loading

pic 1: get the gun
pic 2: pull back the firing pin
pic 3: get a green rod
pic 4: insert at the front
pic 5: click it so it will not come out
pic 6: do this 15 more times

Done.

Step 10: You Are Done!!!

Well Well Well,
you have built yourself the Tornado 480 Command V2
Have fun with my knex gun!!!

author
Skreetsha (author)danbaha2011-02-28

Lot of torque?

author
danbaha (author)2011-02-21

Is a green motor strong enough?

author
Skreetsha (author)danbaha2011-02-27

Dunno, what do green ones look like?

author
dansdoc (author)2010-12-30

Do you think i could use the grey motor on the knex rubberband machine gun???
i mean the one that only says knex!

author
Skreetsha (author)dansdoc2010-12-30

No, grey motor ain't strong enough. Sorry bruv

author
dansdoc (author)Skreetsha2011-01-01

hoi ken je me nog van die knex motor viccie als je dit leest schrijf snel wat terug kun je ook een traditioneel motortje gebruiken zoals zo een met draad je weet wel en met rood gewoon zo standaard ding ik denk dat het ongeveer de zelfde afmetingen zijn

author
Skreetsha (author)lukeg36c2009-01-23

Lijkt me van wel, maar ik weet het niet zeker.

author

English please.

author

I'm sorry, i thought i was talking to a fellow dutch person! But sure, i'll translate it: I think so, but i'm not sure. Thats all i said.

author
J Moneyman (author)Skreetsha2009-11-11

lol, that's a lot of words for just sayin i think so, but im not sure.

author
Skreetsha (author)J Moneyman2009-11-16

Only three words, lol.
You guys in England, Amewrica wherever, can't top the epic shortness difference in this:

Same sentence, different language.

In English:
I would like to have some fish and chips please.

In Dutch:
Een patatje met vis, alstublieft.

Five words less :O
OH MY GAWD!!!1!!1!
;D

author
Skreetsha (author)bighead54542010-07-27

Only the 'G' here is far from what the American 'G' sounds like.

author
J Moneyman (author)Skreetsha2009-11-19

...k... i'm from america BIZNITCH!!! (like the word? i got it from Dane Cooke! :D)

author

You weren't, It just annoys me a little when they talk in a different language.

author

i have to talk in a different language too at the moment .(but then again, i understand the English language).

author

Sorry, I just have a habit of being annoying.

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-04-30

 it doesnt look anything like a minigun. either way, 5.

author
mettaurlover (author)~Aeronous~2010-07-19

It does, actually. Not a very advanced one, but it does. This is about as close as you're going to get with K'nex guns that don't use a chain belt, and those use an external firing box.

author
~Aeronous~ (author)mettaurlover2010-07-19

Its actually a gatling gun. Either way, the only minigun I've seen is the one in Terminator: Salvation. All those war movies with the huge long barrels. You are saying this is a primitive minigun?

author
mettaurlover (author)~Aeronous~2010-07-20

Not really. This is as realistic you'll get with a k'nex gun that fires out of the rotating barrels, except for the fact that it isn't mounted. A minigun would powder your bones if you tried to fire it while holding it like in Terminator.

author
~Aeronous~ (author)mettaurlover2010-07-20

Yeah, but the terminator's bones are made of steel.

author
ooglie_booglie (author)2009-09-01

3* because its combat safe it was lethal it would be 4

author

NO K'nex gun that is legal is lethal.

author
Dirtyboyy (author)2009-06-06

ziet er trouwesn goed uit ;) hoe ver schiet ie ? 4*

author
Skreetsha (author)Dirtyboyy2009-06-10

Niet overdreven ver maar wel behoorlijk voor een full-auto. Iets van 12, 13 meter.

author
travw (author)Skreetsha2009-06-24

Were you saying that is is fully auto and that the range is 12-13 meters?
Sorta creeps me out when I can't understand other people's conversations.

author
KnexFreek (author)travw2009-09-25

i likes using small text and CAPS LOCK

author
smattman22 (author)KnexFreek2010-02-06

I LIKE TYPING IN SMALLER CAPS


author
KnexFreek (author)smattman222010-02-06

LOLOL

author
Skreetsha (author)travw2009-06-25

Yep, thats exactly what i said. Lol, use google translate if i speak Dutch, then you'll kinda know what i'm talking 'bout to another Dutch person.

author
101man (author)Skreetsha2009-06-27

im half dutch

author
Skreetsha (author)101man2009-06-27

Really? Then why do you speak English? En als je dit niet kan lezen ben, jij zowieso geen Hollander.

author
101man (author)Skreetsha2009-06-28

i was born in england but my dads dutch

author
travw (author)Skreetsha2009-06-25

Coooooooooool... The only reason I guessed it that I saw "full auto" between een and lets. And "12, 13 meter." at the end.
