K'nex Tank Instructions

Introduction: K'nex Tank Instructions

About: Hi! I'm coolkidcreator! I like to do random stuff with k'nex. I also like to play 'tickle-tackle'. It's simple! you tickle and then you tackle. I play with my brothers and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and …


Here is my first instructable. My brother helped me to build this and make the instructions. Thanks for building/looking at this!

I will take this from least complicated to most complicated. Follow the notes because it will make it a lot easier.

Have fun! :)

Some facts:

this tank was made in one day

the pieces are all metallic (except for 4 green rods)

Step 1: The Treads

The most important part of the tank... without them it wouldn't be able to move!

Step 2: The Muzzle

What's the point of a tank if it can't shoot?! Here's the thing that actually does that! (it doesn't actually shoot)

Step 3: The Body

What's the point of a tank if you...can't sit in it! Here's the place that your imaginary person sits. You may be able to sit on it, but not in it. It's too small.

Step 4: Putting It All Together

Here we will put all the pieces of the tank together, The last part of the assembly line! Finish this step and you will have a replica of a tank...and you won't have to spend so much $$$! This is somewhat difficult so pay attention! Have fun.
