    Hello slingshot enthusiasts:)

    I just want to show you the latest modification of my HG shooter. I've tried to add a tactical touch. It has been made of several 3 mm layers of plastic and has a magazine for 8 10mm stell balls. It is banded up with double TBB 20/15 mm tapered. That was my first attempt with a 2 component resin finish on this material. It works nice and makes the surface quite durable.
    Hope you like it and thanks for watching.

    Striking!

    Another killer, Flicks. If this doesn't make a beating heart [​IMG] stutter, I cannot imagine what would. Beautifully commanding piece of artistic expression.

    You have most definitely achieved the "tactical" feel that you were going for, I believe.

    But more than this, I think that you've managed to capture an element of magniloquence underlining the villainy bad boy/girl that just begs to come out and play a little. A bit vampirac methinks. Just so you know, you need silver to poof a vamp. I don't think steel will get the job done this time. Maybe a little bug spray will help too.

    It's classy. It's opulent. It's LATRODECTUS! And it 'looks' deadly. Gothic/Medieval guys n gals will be enamored with this! Good job. The F1 Commando rules!

    And for some reason your slingshots seem to inspire a desire to accessorize. Love it!

    The combination of these colors and materials is quite beautiful.
    I think we all want to see more of that kind, maybe in some other colors. But one thing is for sure...they will look awesome. :)
    The fact that I'll never own such a cool slingshot makes me kind of saddish. :( :D

    Thanks Ravensbull

    Thank you onnod

    Thanks, It is not harder but different. The material is quite soft -more or less like balsawood- It can't be polised. You have to finish with clear paint or resin.

    Thank you FIAAO ;)

    Thanks a lot for your nice comment. Thought that I've just made a slingshot, but I am a little bit scared now. I think I will lock the door to the bedroom this night :D
    -Desire to accessorize, huh. Thanks for the hint. I will never show her to my wife ;)

    Thank you my friend

    Thanks Schultz. Hope everything works out with your duck-apocalypse :D

    Thank you courier. The material is availabe in red, black, white, blue, grey, green and yellow

    Thanks mate

    Laughing... What about the Batarang, tokSick!

    I like Batman and Gotham City too. I REALLY like his new Batpod. I want one of those!

    If we keep this up, poor Flicks is never gonna come out from underneath that bed!

    Love the shape of that fork, especially the beaver tail and contoured grip. How much extra leverage does the forward curve below the pinky add?

    Thanks a lot TokSick! A BatSling - nice idea...

    Haha Thistle, very funny![​IMG] I had a look at the shooter this morning and I found it on the same place where I left him yesterday, so I think (hope) everything is ok [​IMG]
    BTW: Did I ever told you how much I appreciate your nice, inspiring and fanciful posts on this forum. Please stay as you are and go on like that.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Thank you my friend!

    Thanks Studer, it does not provide much extra leverage. The curve is more or less a relict of the very first design of this shooter and now used for attaching a lanyard.
