Introduction: WW2 K'nex Spitfire V3.0

Step 1: Making the Nose of the Plane

There is also a rubberband in the nose to give the prop a nice swing ,but you can also go for the upgrade whit a motor ,step 6. Right now could also do the Cockpit Upgrade ,step 7.

Some times there are more instructions in the notes so look there too.

Step 2: Making the Tail

Picture of Making the Tail

The tail of the spitfire just follow the pictures and you'll be fine.

Picture 3 instead of blue bendable rod use normal rods. So the tail is in a better straight line.
Picture 6 the wheel is a 1 inch wheel of plastic.

Step 3: Making the Wings

Make 2 of these only one the opposite.

There is also another idea for the guns for that you need to take a look at step:8 more for the look.

Step 4: Pute It Al Together

Just follow the pictures. And the notes that go whit it.

Step 5: If You Want to Hang the Plane on the Ceiling Like Me.

It is best to use a simple nylon cord. When you cute a piece of it use a lighter to meld the ends. So the ends don't unravel (if that how you call it). And when the balance point as you like. Hang it up some where. I did it above my bed. Or do something else with it.

Step 6: The Engine Update

still better than a rubberband and much cooler and goes faster

Step 7: Cockpit Upgrade

This is the cockpit upgrade. I think it's a nice finishing touch.

Step 8: Little Changes

Little changes. Just fallow the pictures and notes in it.

Later this year ill redo the plane. Maybe ill be able to add more detail and give the wings better shape. As my final Knex project.

Ill be sure to renew the instructable. And if you got any points of view about what wasn't clear, please react to this comment what it was. So i won't repeat the mistake.

TLF93 (author)SN1P3RL0RD2012-10-31

thanks n with that plane i also made a sherman m1 tank

SN1P3RL0RD (author)TLF932012-11-01

I want to see that to. I would never be able to build this stuff because I have a limited amount of K'NEX.

TLF93 (author)SN1P3RL0RD2012-11-02

Good plane, I thought it was a P-40 though.

ferrari484 (author)jmoore112012-01-05

i have to agree XD since building something whit knex is somewhat limited. It's hard to get the right shapes out of it. To make it somekind of a look alike,
and if you made the nose different they would pritty much match =)

dansdoc (author)2011-01-23

ferrari484 (author)dansdoc2010-06-22

adding the motor isn't nessesery, ill clear things upwhen i come down to it

knex inventor (author)ferrari4842010-09-20

adding a motor was neccesary because it ends up being a better model =)

dansdoc (author)ferrari4842010-06-22


mberg (author)2010-08-23

Furloy (author)KnexFreek2010-07-22

Hiyadudez (author)KnexFreek2010-01-03

Harsh much?

KnexFreek (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-03

 if you read it all, you would see were i said thankyou and sorry for being mean

KnexFreek (author)KnexFreek2010-01-01

 i do not know why that turned out as a link. it is not a link

ferrari484 (author)KnexFreek2010-01-01

 I understand and ill remove it and if you want to know way i did it, it's simple knex guns are more viewed then knex planes. So more people will see it.

KnexFreek (author)ferrari4842010-01-01

 Ok listen man, here  is how to jack up those views into the 10 thousands:

Thing A, change the title to Huge Knex Plane
Thing B, in the into say This is my WW2 K'nex Spitfire V3.0! in the biggest boldest letters you can.
Thing C, make the tags: knex, knex, knex, knex, knex plane, knex spitfire, knex ball machine, knex roller coaster, knex tower, knex concepts, knex car, knex truck, knex table, knex man, oblivitus, dj radio, lowney, knexfreek, hiyadudez, mepain, oodalumps, knex tank, knex ww1, knex ww2, knex chess, knex, knex knex, knex 
Thing D, have less info in the intro, if you want people to have info, then saya few things, and leave alot of links :)

ALSO!!!! 5 stars wonderful job and now it is rated at 4.08

ferrari484 (author)KnexFreek2010-01-03

idea. Byem> Thanks for  the five stars. But the reason why I got so much information is just because people wandered how I made it.

And I am going to replace the blurry pictures whit better ones I don't know when. But it will happen. So it might be featured. And that way more people see it. At least that's the idea.

By the way your weird, first you want me to remove the tag guns. While on both wings you got two small guns. And now you want me to add other people names and other stuff that is not relevant.
