K'NEX T-65 X-Wing Starfighter - Star Wars

"Red 5, standing by"

Stand by as I will guide you through this instructable how to build your own K'NEX T-65 X-Wing Starfighter from the Star Wars universe! This starfighter was used by the Rebel Alliance against the mighty Empire in many fights including the destroying of the Death Star in A New Hope.
The X-Wing is a very iconic Science Fiction spacecraft, next to the Millennium Falcon, Slave I and the TIE-Fighter which I already made out of K'NEX. This model has movable wings, that can be put into 'attack position' (as can be seen in the movies). To do this, you turn the wheel on top of the body. In front of that wheel is a mock-up R2-D2. A little detail I wanted to add. Furthermore, the windshield can be opened and closed, but there is no actual interior. In each of the following steps I will explain how you can build your own:

  • Parts needed
  • X-Wing Mechanism
  • Front Hull & Cockpit
  • Quadruple X-Wings
  • Display Stand
Each step has an appropriate Star Wars quote to keep the theming right ;)
