K'Nex: First Order Stormtrooper Transport

Introduction: K'Nex: First Order Stormtrooper Transport

About: Hi guys! It's Ethan1023 (duh!). I'm a Christian, first and foremost, but I have a lot of other interests as well. I love Algebra. It's so useful! Also, PI. Right?

Hi, guys! This is my latest instructable. It's the K'Nex: First Order Stormtrooper Transport, first seen in Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. It's a pretty average size model. It was originally bigger, but I ran out of pieces. So I downsized. I really enjoyed this build, and I hope you will too. May the Force be with you.

Step 1: Piece List

Who tries to build the model when you don't know which pieces you need? Here's the parts list for the build.

    My son really wants to make this transporter but Step 2: The Exoskeleton is just showing up as a blank space. Maybe you need to rehost photos or something? Thanks!

    Ok: No clue how that happened. I'll definitely get on it. At any rate, the "exoskeleton" pics are located in the "loading ramp" section, and so on and so forth. The pictures for the loading ramp are in the "pics and pieces" section.

    I'm positive that I uploaded them in the right order. I wonder what happened.

    All of the steps have backed up a step. I'm terribly sorry. I have no clue how that came about. I'll fix it when I have time.

    Thanks! I was really proud of the thrusters as my favorite piece of the ship.

    The loading ramp was okay. I was so proud of it on the bigger model, but then I ran out of pieces and had to cope with a different design. *sigh*... ...it's still okay, though.

    Looks pretty good. When I saw the cover photo, I thought that it was some kind of chainsaw.

    Ha, nice. Can't say I haven't thought about a chainsaw, but I didn't get it to work.

    This is a really cool ship in VII, which is why I chose this initially.
