A "red"  flexi rod will be released in new K'NEX sets! (It's going to be orange)
Are you referring to the orange curved pieces shown in the 2019 sets post you started? If so, these aren’t new pieces; they’re hard, permanently curved pieces that have been used in previous coaster sets.

Seriously? I didn't know they were permanently curved! Interesting!
Yeah, I was referring to them :) Thanks for the info

I spy a few gears underneath the Jeep in the first picture… maybe a differential?

The gears are for the steering mechanism. It's huge and clumsy, but I guess it works. I think there is also a motor present (red block behind the seat)

Also, the “control crane” on the right side of the last picture looks promising!

Yeah! I really wanted to see a picture of that!

There should be some cool new sets upcoming this year (2019)Why? Because Knex - Finally - decided to dedicate a full colour to a complete model!
Some examples:

Which robotics set is it? Cyber Knex? (Bright green controller)
Or something else?

Hi, cool you want to experiment;
They should be in some education sets... but that would be a rather expensive green gear. And I don't know in which sets exactly they come.
I think your best option is to contact Knex User Group (Mr. Shercliff) about the gear, I think he can at least tell you in which sets they are.
Hope that helped!

Project Progress / K'NEX Ball Machine - Death Star II
« on: May 08, 2019, 10:46:37 pm »
Finally some noteworthy progress for my first (and probably last) ball machine...Because with the square pieces of K'NEX I've been trying to make a ball. A big ball. A ball of death and destruction.
The Death Star (II, since it will be open from one side)
It's quite piece-intensive. Here follow some pictures:
  • Hexagons. Nice try. Flexible, but doesn't work. Remains a flat surface.
  • Pentagons! Yay! but how to connect them?
  • Ooh, looks promising... I got a circle now! But there's a hole in the middle.
  • This might work...
  • It does!
  • Backside... I will replace some of the silver 3D connectors with purple ones, otherwise I don't have the pieces  ;D

Project Progress / Thunderbird 1 - WIP

Hi guys,
I know I've been absent for a long time. I hope the video's #1, #2 and #3 about some ideas I have over time, showed you that I'm not dead yet.
Here's two other pictures of my latest project, although also that has been on a break since october. Hope you'll like what I'm building. (Banana for scale)

Any other spaceship requests? I don't do Avengers stuff -_-'  I'm thinking about the Whizzing Arrow 2/3 from Oban Star Racers :D (or another ship from the series in that matter)

But say K'NEX would introduce this piece, which colour would you like it to have?
I think I'd be happy to see a yellow or grey flexi-rod.

There's no use for a green flexi rod... so this is understandable. But a red one... I mean, why not? curious.

Wow, I never realized until you brought it up!
But also this is a part that I never felt was missing... unlike so many other parts haha.

It's look pretty cool ! THis is the type of model that K'nex industrie should sell in their shops ! Next to this, The Plants vs Zombie or others models like that are totally naught...
Yeah and the size is not too big. I think there are about 200 pieces in there right now? Perhaps 250 when complete.

During Kingsday I found the rare yellow 3D connectors... 4 of each. This motivated me to yellow-ize the Sports Car. You can see the result so far below. I'm thinking to make the interior in yellow too.
The yellow steering wheel fits great :) Only I'm not happy about the window-stiles.

Not yet :)

You guys have the right to see me more active. I hope I can bring you instructions for three models (AT-ST, Y-Wing and updated Lambda) and this one soon.
As the weather is getting nicer, It's easier to take pictures and videos of my models. Pictures means instructions... and so on.

I'm not dead yet!
