My second instructable:
How to create a Jack-o-Lantern using fischertechnik elements

I play with different educational manipulatives for a living. (Visit www.weirdrichard.com). Over the years I have built different holiday-themed models using all sorts of toys. It is easy to create awesome Halloween models with fischertechnik elements...especially as many ft elements are black and red. This instructable will describe how to create a fischertechnik Jack-o-Lantern.

Note: The CAD looking images were generated by LDraw/MLCAD and a fischertechnik elements library.

Hehe, I wonder if a FisherTechnik gun is possible.
it is... i made a cupple. mostly rubberband guns. this is my best one. shots 12 rubberbands. but how much rubberbands you can load on it all depends on how much string you have on it.
