Noob question destroying spaceship

Hello everyone,

Before I start I want to say that I’m not good with making 3d models so please, don’t laugh at my model :stuck_out_tongue:
I made some sort of airship for a realy simple game. now it is just a static model that i rotate ingame for movement.
But when it crashes you just see the model fly into something and then just stop there. What i want to make is some sort of animation that breaks the model into pieces and throw them somewhere away and make an explosion in the middle.
I really think the game would improve if I made that but I have no idea where to start and how to animate it.

This is my model:

in the objects menu on the main header of your 3D window, go to ‘quick effects’ and choose ‘quick explode’. that would be the simplest solution.

Thank you very much!
its quick and easy to use!
