What Should I Make Next? Answered

Picture of

Alright I have ideas but I have no clue which I want to do. So I'm simply going to ask you guys. Which of these should I make? By the way check out my TDS Instructable I updated it with a simple slide mechanism. Compact Assault Rifle Like an AK-74u or an XM8C. Basically I want to try to make a small gun that has some good strength. (an exact gun you want me to do would be helpful) Power Weapon/ Sniper I dunno this is something I really wanted to make for a long time after getting some more pieces. I've had I don't know at least 4 or 5 failed attempts before I don't like what I'm making. I have yet to make a weapon simply dedicated to power. Another Side Arm My TDS is great and all but it could have been a lot better. Basically I'll try something new and see what I get. Crossbow I suck at these...and that's why I want to try it out. It's another thing that I think a knexpert should have along side a side arm and sniper. What I would plan out then is a repeater so it has a magazine. Siege Weapon Something else I was curious about. A catapult or maybe a scorpion although it would probably just end up being an even smaller version of I_a_C's cannon. I'm not to enthusiastic about this one. Other Gun Replicas I guess I could try to make other replicas of bigger weapons but unlike the compact assault rifles they'll most likely be more for looks than function. Any Combination of the Above? I don't know maybe a cross bow pistol the handle loads sounds kind of cool although it would sure be a challenge. Or if you have other ideas tell me. Those were what I could think up at the moment and would be willing to do.

TheDunkis (author)dsman1952762008-08-26

Because it isn't a gun...I thought you would have learned kiteman by now, dsman. It would be pretty cool though. Like a 3D detailed logo. If I had more parts I would have tried making it into a ball machine. Hey that gives me an idea...I should try making the logo with linerider.

Why? Because you can, because it's creative, and because other people might use it.

i guess. but really making letters was not knexes first function. if you want that then use legos. anyway, i would do it but i just don't have time now, between school and marching band i really don't have time for stuff. i only have a limited amount of time to spend on things like knex so i only focus on things that i really want to make. i think you might be happy to know that i am in the process of making a roll out desk drawer.

Interesting...I was actually planning to make my initials in large 3D constructions but I might do that instead except smaller scale.

TheDunkis (author)King_Banana2008-08-25

I know that's the only reason I wanted to make one was the clip mechanism. I don't think I can make it "en bloc" style where they are 2x4 but I had an idea for 1x8 clips that are inserted in a similar fashion. I don't think I can make an ejecting shell but who knows I might think of something.

OK screw that. I just don't know how I would make a barrel for it that works with a magazine. I'd also have to figure out how to prevent the magazine from loading until I pull the bow back...time to look at that cool lego cross bow pistol.
