    Hey everyone,

    Phoenix was born! - Made of aquarell-paper, mulberry bark, some redish cloth
    Slagskimmer Mike gave to me as a Present, and some Bangkirai...

    You have Be come a master at building slingshots! I really like how you have developed your own style that is very unique and complex, but not too crazy.
    This is great work, and a great selection of materials! I'm looking forward to more pictures of this baby!

    The Phoenix - a predator!

    Supplied with red wings, this beast attacks at around 105 meters per second!-
    378 km/h ... due to some special red rubber which is twice as thick as TBG...

    What do you think?- Was it worth the effort / is this something someone
    would want to have?

    I hope you like it! Greetings to everyone,

    Be

    Would anyone want it? Really? That's the wrong question, rather you should be asking "who wouldn't want it?" Just a beautiful piece of work Be. Your laminating/micarta work has progressed so quickly. As Will stated, you have certainly defined your own style. This is the kind of work you could sell easily. I love the colors in this one too, nice choice of materials. Is that an Axiom shape you've modeled this after? Very nice work my friend.

    My friends!

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words!- Those mean a lot to me!
    I´m preparing for a "test balloon" to be launched this year..

    The design I build at the moment was inspired by Daniel Ko - a Hong Kong catapult designer;
    (http://www.milbroproshotuk.com/Catapults-And-Slingshots/Worldwide-Slingshots/Scallop-Aluminium)

    It´s the same type as my 4th, the "Priest", das (doppelte :) ) "Lottchen" Mike and Will have, as well as the "Mantis"..



    kind regards to you,

    Be

    Why wouldn't someone want to have it? I know I do. I like the perpendicular section you put in, it's quickly becoming like a maker's mark

    Be...I started off looking at something intriguing, it has good colors but not yet shaped. I know there is something in there I can't wait to see. And then POW! I see the berth of a wonderful SS. When my gaze falls upon your creations I am filled with joy. Thank you again for sharing you work. Yours and all the other creative works of art (and yes I think what we all do here are not only functional weapons and such but also great work of art that tells a story of the creator) give me inspiration. My only regret is I don't have the time to make one of of everything I see on the forum. Be your work ROCKS!
