Does anyone know how to make a carbiner and figure 8?

You're probably better off buying pre-built ones from existing sets...
the 21C ones are fairly easy to find, and there are several other figures that had both, though I don't remember any names offhand.

It would be easy to make a servicable rig out of wire, but if you want it to look at all realistic, check with a parts dealer instead.
(Besides, you'd probably want a Safety-8, rather than a true figure 8 anyway... they're a bit easier to deal with... especially at small scales)

how would you setup the figure 8 and the caribiner to repell?

What you do is make a u shape out of the rope and put it through the big hole and slip the over the small hole.
