I made an Slingshot for my friend "Ozzy" and it has the 2th layer of varnish .
It has bin called The Starship on this forum hahahhaa I like that .


It need still an couple layers extra to get it right for polishing


And we need to get tube





Speaking of tube Ive got on of the first Ive made slingshots to trade for a couple of meters The most heavy Thera tube available .

Nice!

BTW, "starship" is the generally accepted term for a forward extended slingshot that has an arm brace.

i was contemplating ways to stop handslap the other day. all of my ideas involved something that look like one of those "stabilizers" on barnett slingshots......then i saw jorg's video and it made me feel stupid
but i guess thats what this orum is for. What bands do you use PTL? silver theratube?

Hahaha This going to be completely off topic and probably in the wrong place

I like to tell you about my other hobby's
Yes I race together with my 14 year old son in the 1/8 Nitro Truggy cup thats held in Europe ( Belgium , Germany and Holland )
I have to say and admit he is a better driver
but lucky I may pay for his driving errors / crashes



Ive got an other hobby as well Kite Buggy racing
This is racing on a beach with a 3 wheel cart driven by a kite !


This was the start last weekend 03 / 04 Juli of a race for the final German championship held at the beach of Sankt Peter Ordning Germany
The size of the kites used in this pict. Ar between 9 and 11 qm
I can keep on telling about these hobby's for a very long time , but there Ar other forum for that .
www.vliegerforum.nl My link and www.truggy.nl My link
Okee enoughs about me what about you guys ?
Do you have other hobby's beside slingshot shooting ?

Have Fun

Its ready to be used .....
The only thing is to get the tube from Brasschaat Belgium .
Ive showed Ozzy the frame Yesterday He liked it and it had a good fit in his hand












But he was really font of the camo finish I did on the one I did before .
So he got his camo .






Tell me if you like it too ?

I was lucky too get 10 old bearings that give me 80 steel balls of 17.5 mm
But too shoot these I need heavier tube !
I am thinking too put on 2 sets ( 4 tubes ) of Barnett replacement sets ?
Is this a good idea ?????

Have Fun
