Knex viking war ship- v1 Answered

Picture of

Knex viking war ship, the historic art of Knex.

Well, to be honest, I don't really know where I came up with this idea, but it came to me in a flash.
The designs pictured are just prototypes, but right now I am working on a way to get all of the paddles on either sides to move back and fourth at the same time (any suggestions or help would be appreciated)/

Anyway, tell me what you think, and remember, this is only v1.

Not bragging or anything... but that is only about 1/20 of my Knex.

On the sides of the ship you have the row of yellow connectors and white rods. Lift that up by using white rods instead of green. On the new white rods put  orange connectors on and add the paddles to them. Hook them all together on the inside and when you put a rod or whatever they will all move. I hope you understand that. :-)
