K'NEX T-65 X-Wing Starfighter - Star Wars
--> View Instruction



"Red 5, standing by"
- Luke Skywalker
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 ;)

Wow, this X-Wing is amazing, I love the amount of detail you manage to squeeze in with the large knex pieces! Also, I find it awesome that the wings are able to move! :D

Great model! I like the attention to detail, like the red colors, and that mechanism to extend the wings.
This is not a signature.

Thanks! ;D I had to lend 4 red micro panels from my brother's K'NEX collection to get those details right ;) Mechanism wasn't easy, but that's why I started with it :)

:D Thanks thanks. And did you notice mock-up R2-D2? :P

Suddenly I saw the contradiction of "This is a signature" and "This is not a signature" Made me Laugh ^^
