    So, after i made two 2 handed weapons, i wanted something different.
    and what could be cooler than an assasins creed slingshot :).

    As always, it´s made from cardboard and glue, but this time i also needed some nails. (stopping mechanism)
    weight: 850g

    Man, another great weapon made from cardboard! This one seems as though it would be difficult. Especially areas that need to withstand the force (fork arms, trigger)
    . Very nice job, as always! Thank you for sharing with us!

    No, my fault, I was not very clear.

    ah okay, now i get it.
    actually, this was the first weapon i made that really fired at the first try :).

    the handgrip and the fork are just one piece (one big "U") that makes it very solid and the trigger mechanism is pretty simple i think.

    [​IMG] Your mastery of cardboard weapons continues to astound me!

    I agree with Will, it looks complicated to build. Yet another very impressive slingshot. And I love the forearm mount application! Assassins Creed rocks again.

    Very cool stuff there. It is incredible what you can make out of cardbord. Keep on the good work my friend. ;)

    thank you very much!

    hmm, maybe i just thought it´s an easy to make mechanism because i had so terrible ideas before building it like this.

    At first i wanted to make a trigger like Jörg used on his cannon-slingshot, that would be even more difficult i think, and not that strong (cardboard you know...:))
