Description and photos say it all. A knex mech. I got kinda bored with my guns so I thought I could maybe post this. Good luck building!
Step 1: Parts List
Parts you need:
Y connector: 4
Ball connector: 1
Joint connector: 1
Gray one-hole connector: 8
Other type of gray connector: 13
Orange connector: 2
Red connector: 17
Green connector: 13
Yellow connector: 6
White connector: 1
White rod: 22
Blue rod: 7
Yellow rod: 3
Step 2: Legs
First you'll have to make the legs. Start with the main structure, shown on the first two images. Sorry fo the blur. You will need 2 of these. The orange thing is a light grey connector. If you're done, make the feet, shown on image 3. Take good note that one of the green connectors is a yellow, this is important for stability later on. The part in image 4 is also very important for stability. In image 5, 6 and 7 you can see how this works out. I know, the robot can not walk with two bars attached to if feet, but this prevents it from toppeling over. Then just add the two legs to the feet, and we got the first part done! Easy, no? Let's move on...
Step 3: Body
Nothing like a sturdy base to build on!
-TigerNod, while playing C&C 3 and peforming an hit-and-run with his scorps.
The body, a large chunck of metal that houses the critical parts of a mech to operate and that can be used to mount various weapon systems. Follow the pictures.
Step 4: Legs + Body = EPIC WIN!!! (but Not a Grand Titan)
Not really a step, just a little filler up to keep the pressure on. Look at the fourth picture, isn'nt it beutiful? We almost got ourselves a trusty mech! But we're not there yet, so get busy.
Step 5: Cockpit & Missile Launcher
Step 6: "Nice View From Up Here!" -Mech Pilot
Sorry for the blur. By now, it might be a good idea to take a break from your hard work. After all, I am not responsible for any damage caused by not taking enough rest ;-)
Step 7: Gattling Cannon and Railgun ( the Fun Parts :-D)
In the fist picture is the Railgun. If you can't make it from that pic, you're just lazy, or stupid. The other eight pictures show the Gattling, in steps, and the final one is the arm you need to put them on.
Step 8: At Last! the Final Assembly! :D
So there we are, at the final step! In the first image, add the gattling to the "arms". Shouldn't be too hard. Then, add the Railgun the the other arm. Add the arm to the body of the mech as shown in image 3. Then finally, add the cockpit. In the fouth image the arms are removed for a better view at the parts; however, I put them back on in the fifth. The cockpit should fit exactly on the other parts. In the other pictures you can see how.
Step 9: Finished!
Congratulations. You are done with building. Now use your new Titan knex mech to crush some kitties!
