K'nex - Biplane Instructions

Introduction: K'nex - Biplane Instructions

About: Welcome to my Instructables page

Hey guys and today I bring you something a little bit different. Many years ago I found instructions for a biplane on a website that doesn't exist anymore but at least I did print of the instructions. Several years later I couldn't find them, thinking that I threw them away by accident and that was it. But would you believe it I found them and decided to share it with everyone on instructables.

Also check out my other creations and instructions

Well Inventor, I really would like to post something new on Instructables again but I just don't have the time anymore as much I would like to get back into it. I still got all of my K'nex, I wouldn't sell it or throw it away.

Well Monkey, I really like the list of K'nex idea weapons you have given me since firstly they are all WW2 weapons except for the minigun and secondly I really love WW2 weapons. Good luck building them

Not going to lie, I've always been a fan of WW1 planes. The only era when the design for planes could differ extremely! Example, Red Barons Triplane. Regardless awesome job!
