Step 3: The Sides

Welcome to step 3. I am sure you completed step 2. So now now that you entered step 3 we should probably continue.

    Well, the K'NEX community has moved from things like roller coasters and video game holders. It is generally accepted that if you don't build good guns, your just another nOOb. Now, this is not my view, but that is the general view, I believe. I don't know how many K'NEX you have, but if you have quite a few, I would suggest that you start building other peoples guns. Now, when I was a nOOb, I thought building other peoples guns were lame, because then I was not producing any of my own. But, building other peoples guns has made me WAY better than I might have been, so I suggest you get building. Have fun!

    Maybe I could try to build a gun... It'll suck but I don't care! :)
    BTW I've allready built a gun a long time ago:
    Nah, after seeing this, I think it's better if I continue building ball machines :D

    uhum... Then I guess you don't want to see the first, exclusive photo's of my newest ball machine where I'm working on right now...
