Make it as tall as you want. This version is perfect for any size rooms with an average 8ft celling. Make as tall as you want. To assemble taller towers break it about 4ft up and then lift up the part(only if it is over 10ft tall)and reconnect it. Check out my homemade snow machine!

Step 1: The Base

This is the bottom of the tower that keeps it from falling over in 5mph wind.

Step 2: Main Body 1

Make 5 of these.

Step 3: Main Body 2

Make 4 of these.

Step 4: Antenna

This is unnecessary but makes it look more realistic.

Step 5: Connection

The Fun Part.

Step 6: Make It Taller

Use as many of each section as you want as long there are the same amount of each Body type. Here is a picture of my tallest tower yet. ITS 15.5 FEET TALL. I used a normal type top because I was out of pieces. You could make this very tall but you might need to make the base another layer wider.

    complicated...i have actually discovered a much better design now but it actually is more complex than meets the eye.

    Might gather up my friends and make a 20+ tall tower with a seat and k'nex minigun mount, but that'd need to be HUGE and insanely strong...... that'd require a huge base, though...

    maybe if you took out some internals you add a elevator lift.
