One of my favorite cars of all time, the classic dodge charger R/T 1969! This is my K'nex interpretation of the car which intends to recreate the subtle curves, bumpers and proportions of the original car. In this creation I use grey coloured pieces to represent the chrome bumpers of the original car. I have tried to include some of the smaller details such as the lights at the front, exhaust pipes at the back, and a basic pretend engine etc.
As usual, here are my 'stats' for this car, these are in relation to other cars I've built in the past. (Out of 5)
The looks ****'
Build difficulty ****
Please note that most of the instructions are written as annotations on the images themselves.
Step 1: Building the Chassis
In this step we will build the chassis, the base of the car which the shell sits on. In this step we will also be creating the engine which sits on top.
Step 2: Building the Front
In this step you will be taken through how to create the front, including the lights, grille, bumpers, bonnet and part of the windshield. We will also be combining what we created in step 1 with what step 2 will result in.
Step 3: Building the Middle
This is probably the most fiddly step but stick with it! It will be worth it. We will be creating the roof, and sides of the car.
Step 4: Creating the Back
Now we will making the back of the car, the back lights, bumper & exhausts!
This step is quite tricky too due to the flexi pieces, but eventually all the loose bits and bobs come together and you will have completed the entire car! :D
Step 5: Congrats You Have Built the Car!
Well done you have completed it!
