    Hello dear comrades of rubber,

    my name is fabi, i´m a tattoo-artist from düsseldorf/germany with a history in advertising before, and i´m into crafting, building, making stuff since i was a kid on a farm..

    now, grown up and stuck to the city, i was really thrilled when I first saw Mr. Jörg Sprave´s Youtube-Channel last year.. which led me to this forum (like many of you, i think, thanks jörg for this).. so i´m definetely a noob but very dedicated :)

    my english is quiet rubbish, so i apologize for any crude words in advance.. :D

    ..here´s a pile of my slingshots i made during the year so far..
    ..i´m mostly into natural forks, but like mixing different materials a lot, too..

    ..i´ve found a favourite type of fork, which i didn´t see before, correct me if i´m wrong..probably :D
    ..so here is my favourite shooter by now.. the little extrafork is for the thumb, which gets it out of the way and makes it more stable.. and i´m deadly accurate with it..

    [​IMG]

    ..a small one with a leatherdress.. you can hold it with open hand and your forefinger pointing at the aim..

    ..and some four layers of laminated leather, a small pocketshooter..
    [​IMG]

    ..i´ll post a thread with all of them in detail in a while.. :)

    if you ever need a blueprint of one of my forks, feel free to ask, and if somebody wants to trade, borrow or getting sth. build, i would be superhappy :D
    and maybe there´s somebody near me to shoot some cans :)

    ..so, i hope to contribute a bit to this great forum and it would be keen to talk to you guys..

    cheers,
    fabi

    You have been busy this past year. Post more individual pictures of your various slingshots under the "Show Off Your Homemades" section of the website. There are many of us that might be interested in trading.

    Welcome to the forum. It is good to have another builder.

    Your English is very good compared to my German.

    Hello and welcome!
    It seems as though the slingshot virus has infected you...badly!! I am amazed by the amount of quality shooters you have built! I know you will feel right at home here, and I hope that you enjoy the forum as much as I do.
    Oh, and your English is nearly perfect. I wish I could say the same for the youth of this country:(

    Anyway; good things to come, enjoy the ride!
