    Once a while (usually after a slingshot meeting where every TTF shooter just rules the stage)
    i say to myself... why don´t you use TTF.:rolleyes::D
    Unfortunately i always find TTF less relaxing to shoot,
    because i need to concentrate even more not to hit the stupid frame :D.

    But it´s again the time after a slingshot meeting and here we go again.:rolleyes:
    I had a new TTF frame designed and wanted to cast it in aluminum,
    but it was not possible at Mihla. But i wanted to try the frame,
    so i made a nice one from only acrylic glas.

    This is the most complex form i have every built.
    But the work was not in vain and i am pleased with the outcome.
    It fits nicely into my hand and i even included a sighting system,
    that was introduced to me by Andy (derandy) with his part of our trade.
    So i have a aiming groove and a aiming notch...
    You can´t miss with that, right?:rolleyes:;)
    Well, we will see about that.:D
    I realised the pointy handle actually resembles slingshotnew´s handles.
    I guess your work inspires me more than i thought, my friend. ;)

    This frame is made only from black and red acrylic glas.
    No glue... just welded together with the acetone-method.
    The frame is solid as a rock.
    Sanded up to 500 grit and polished on a buffing wheel.

    Here are some pictures of the final piece.:cool:

    Thanks for watching.

    Formula one.

    Wow. It should be sitting in the back pocket of a scarily expensive motorbike or formula one set of leathers.

    It sits very snuggly in my hand and it is a comfortable shooter. The aiming device works actually better than i thought. It´s fun to shoot.
    Do i hit anything with it?... yes, but not better than with any other slingshot:D. But i had crappy old bands on it today... will try a new bandset soon.;)

    Thanks everybody.
    I am glad you like it.:)

    Incredible! And solvent welding is not an easy task!
    Must have taken ages to liberate this shape from a block of acrylic, but well worth the effort.
    Very nice, thanks for sharing!

    This one reminds me on the 3-Wheel-Slingshoot-Roadster I've seen a few weeks ago in munich. Very nice work, dude! Perfect coating, mmmmh - like a candy :)

    A small addition to the starfighter family.
    i scaled the template down to 50%, the rest is pretty much the same.

    I changed the sighting system a bit. this one is now adjustable(very little though:rolleyes:)/detachable.
    Its an additional slot where i can clamp in some of that plastic material, i used in many other slingshots as spacer.
    Works pretty neatly. :D

    Schießt erstaunlich gut. Die Große ist aber doch angenehmer zu halten.:)
