Lego Cannon: Open Topped

Introduction: Lego Cannon: Open Topped

About: I am a lover of trains and I do model railroading with HO scale. I also railfan! I build many things with K'nex for inside and outside no matter the weather (unless the motor is not water proof). I have loved …

Helloooo people! Here is a cannon that I have made with a manual launcher. With a pad stand for stability, this thing is more outside than inside. My first cannon on my page, it has been interesting planning and building. I tried to make it as large as I can, but unfortunately, I didn't have enough pieces to do this. Hope you enjoy this new building! And remember, I don't care what colors you use, just as long as you have these specific pieces!

Step 1: WARNING!!

DO NOT SHOOT AT OTHER PEOPLE!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE WHO IS HURT OR INJURED! THAT'S ON YOU! BE SAFE AND CAUTIOUS WITH THIS THING!!! PLS!!

Step 2: The Cannon

Here you will build the cannon part and let me tell you, you will need a lot of pieces. Pic 7 is improvised because the rubber band would not go as far, so I made the rubber band hole bigger. Keep the cannon part as pic 7 states.

Step 3: Stand

Here you will build the stand for the cannon. Its not too big and not too small. Pic 4 and 5 is the parts to the spinner.

Step 4: Ammo

Here is the ammo for the cannon.

Step 5: Ammo Storage

Here is the ammo storage chest to store it away when not using the cannon.

Step 6: Loading and Launching

You will need to keep a 1x12 piece to help with the loading.

- Simply put the rubber band on the 1x12 piece and push it back to the back of the cannon as in pic 1 and 2. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TAKE OFF THE STAND BEFORE DOING THIS OTHERWISE IT WILL BREAK!!

- Place your holding on the rubber band as in pic 3. Take out the 1x12 piece and put it aside.

- Load up your ammo as in pic 4

- Aim for the target you want it to launch at. And like that BOOM! Your cannon is ready to travel with you and hit targets (yes this is portable and the next step tells you how).

Step 7: Making It Portable

To simply make it portable, detatch the stand from the cannon like in pic 1.

Put it on the top front of the cannon like in pic 2 & 3.

Put the ammo back in the storage box like pic 4.

Attatch the storage box where it is in pic 5.

Put your 1x12 as shown in pic 6.

And viola! Portable now for on the go!

Step 8: Assembling It

You should have the following parts when disassembling it (see pic 1). Just reattatch the stand like in pic 2 and your done! Easy peasy!

Step 9: Fin!

Your are now capable of having a lego cannon with you now! Enjoy!
