    Hey guys<br> After making my previous starship I made this new one, I Made it out of plywood and added the forks I took from the first one, with this one I made a different brace and added a sight made out of some metal and a bolt, i can hit some targets now <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">, but my strong bands broke so now i have to use weaker ones <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pale.gif" alt="pale" longdesc="26"><br>Here are the pics<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=110&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0231.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=111&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0232.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=112&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0233.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=113&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0234.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=114&u=17316359" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i31.servimg.com/u/f31/17/31/63/59/imag0235.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    the power is good, the color says nothing(there red in real life btw, the have pink too but is is way weaker)<br>this bands are 2 layers of 2*1*30, with 3 or 4 layers you will shoot trough almost everything

    Nice one onnod. I got some of that TB red, really weak. I use it when i have nothing else but i have to put six layers each side to have a decent pull. But it do the job, no doubt aboutt that. Your fork (attachement method) is really cool mate. Nice job, again.

    Ok. Then it is probably strongest then TB red. Did you already compared the two brands? If so, what are you thinking about them?

    Nice SS onnod!!! I like the sight. I chuckled a bit when I saw it and hope you will too. It looks very close to the one on my bench I'm trying to finish up. How thick is the plywood(multiplex) you used? When you shoot, do you hold it at a 45* angle?<br>B

    i think it is 18 mm thick, what do you mean with a 45* angle, you mean like semi sideways??
