    hey guys<br>made these last week, they both are bugs.<br>the green one is made from plywood and it is painted with see-trough green paint, which shows the grain and the different layers very good. i also did some filework to make it a bit cooler<br>the second is made from part a hardwood bug and part a broomstick, i saw this somewhere on youtube and wanted to try it. it handles pretty good.<br>the third bug is my previously posted one, that i cleaned up, attached a belt clip and dremeled an o in to it.<br>the last thing is a extension piece i made for my catch box, it is a piece of metal cable and a spring to tension it.<br>you can tie a can to it and the can spins around if you hit it and than it hangs down and you can shoot it again <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> .<br>the pics:<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=91&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0122.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=92&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0123.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=90&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0121.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=86&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0117.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=84&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0115.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=80&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0212.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=81&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0213.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=78&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0210.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>well that's it, hope you guys like it

    Nice job and i`ll add to that ...Anything a person takes the time and effort to make everyone should appreciate ... even if something doesn`t come out the way you planned ..it is the effort that counts If something doesn`t come out 'right' don`t toss it , keep it ! it is yours something you made with your own hands <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_surprised.gif" alt="Surprised" longdesc="4">) < as you can tell i hate this ''Plastic'' world we now live in ! And your slingshots are a lot nicer than any tree branch job i ever made at your age lol No i didnt keep them ..they were an embarrassment UGH LOL Keep up the good work

    Like them all but the beltclip got my vote, nice wood and it has the best finish. One thing: dont carry it on youre belt in sight, we both know why <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> .<br><br>O and i might have a little tip for you (if you dont know it already): you can get therabands at Zorgwinkels Medicura for 12 euro. They also sell another brand for same prize but then the strongest are Black instead of yellow.<br><br>I,m gonna get some of that soon to see if its any good, and because i like black much better then yellow, but thats just personal <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">. PS dont buy them online cos that cost another 8 euro delivery <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>All the best.

    the beltclipped one looks best. though i would prefer a leather/kydex holster on my belt.
