K'NEX Snowspeeder from Star Wars
--> View Instruction



"Echostation 328... We've spotted Imperial Walkers"
In this instructable I will show you how to build a K'NEX Snowspeeder that can take down those All Terrain Armoured Transports, also known as AT-AT's.
The snowspeeder is a modified version of the Incom T-47 Airspeeder: It has additional armour and lasers. The cooling radiator on the back is insulated against the extreme cold on the planet Hoth.
My K'NEX model is 16.5 cm long and uses only 131 parts and is thereby my smallest Star Wars model that I've built so far. The model has a windshield that can open (but not like in the movie) and Air-brake flaps, to enable very tight turns. Also a Harpoon is positioned in the back, just like in the real aircraft. It was built alongside the AT-AT as can be seen in the video below. Building time was about 2 hours in total.
This instructable will guide you through the following steps:
  • Parts needed to build this model
  • Building the Snowspeeder
  • Building the Display Stand

It's so small and cute  ;D I can probably remove/ replace the angle clips and build this :)
