Of course! It's my goal to make every single one of your Star Wars models, they're great!

:o That would be an honour!
If you do, post a comment under the instructable with some pictures of it, and use the "I made it!" button :D Then I will hope to have some reward for you ^^

I'll absolutely do that! I want to make all of them to have at the same time, so I'll shoot you a picture of the fleet on your OB when its done. However I need to get all the pieces first.

I had a question about that, actually. Where do you get your pieces from? Because you use pieces that I have never seen before-from those interesting ball-sockets to the black 4-slot connectors (the ones that are usually various shades of green). I normally order from the K'nex website but I don't think I've seen some of those pieces on there.

Ooh that'd be great! I could have the TIE and the X-Wing together, but I just prefer to build them, not really to play :) So first off all, I'd like to mention that I don't have tons of pieces, but I have many different ones. And yes, some are really rare. I couldn't build the Millennium and the X wing together, for instance. Too many light grey 5-way connectors :P

If you're in the US, Knex.com would be your best option, but indeed their stock is limited and not very spectacular. On page 9, the regular pieces start: http://www.knex.com/shop/339/Parts-and-Extras/next...

I have bought from KnexUserGroup in the UK: (because I'm in Europe): http://www.knexusergroup.org.uk/acatalog/knex-part...

They have much more, also rare stuff, but stock slowly becomes the same as Knex.com because they only sell new parts.
So your next stop would be KnexSpares, also in the UK: www.knexspares.co.uk/ But their site is under maintenance atm. They don't have everything, but some things you wont find at KUGroup. They also offer bulk buy (50) of light grey 5-way connectors and silver rods. I use these often in my builds. They also sell black 8-way connectors.

Lastly, you can be lucky with ebay sales. But for specific parts, this is less interesting of course. Hope that helped!

Thanks for subscribing, it really means a lot.

Wow, you're still around? Making anything?

Well at times I decide to lurk here and there lol just to see if anything really amazing has popped up, but I am working on guns made out of wood at the moment. I use the same building technique as K'nex, layered building that is, but I am not limited to the strict K'nex geometry. I have a design for a mag-fed crossbow pistol that I hope to begin building soon, though it is hard to find time for it, but it will get done eventually. When it is done I will be sure to post it. How have things been with the K'nex community?
The knex community has been pretty lively lately. A lot of the original KI'ers came back so we got quite a few experience members here now. The majority of knex guns (if you haven't looked already) are usually shooting replica guns. If you wanted to see a few of them pay the Red Book of Westmarch a visit. It's cool that you're applying knex concepts to wood, personally I would make much more stuff I didn't always use knex, but then my parents think I'm going to destroy/hurt something (you should have seen my mom's face when I told her I found the 50in magnifying glass for my solar scorcher). Anyway I'll be looking for that wood crossbow pistol in the future!

Also did that machine gun concept you built have any potential in range?
Hi there! I wish you a merry Christmas, and a spectacular New Year!

I enjoyed shooting my Kinno-2, it was much larger and used more pieces that expected but it is really fun to use. Maybe make your next Kinno a little smaller. I will definitly build the next one in this series.
