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

    You're welcome! BTW, do you still build with K'NEX? It would be awesome to see you post something new!

    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!

    Yeah that's pretty sweet! I liked the p38 lightning. WWII had a couple great planes.

    Thanks Corgi, I can't see the biplane in your favourites so you might need to try again. I tell you what if you put whichever of my creations you can build in your favourites and do a few reviews, I promise i will subscribe to you. Also would really appreciate if you subscribe to me.
