Dude its awesome!

I know a way to make this fire, but please do not point this at ANYONE for this can go through cardboard (i do not care if you point this at living things EXCEPT FOR HUMANS) now the things that hold the rubber band onto the red connectors REMOVE those. Then, IF you have the bendy connectors this WILL work, if you don't sorry. now instead of using the green hubs, (the ones that hold the actual part that is supposed to bend back like a bow) you use the yellow ones (the half circle ones). now remove the hard yellow connectors and replace them with the orange bendy ones. And finally, those connectors that are facing forward in the front, remove those. Then you take the ink thing from inside a pen and use that for (lethal) ammo. Now put the pen ink thing (from now on ill call it a pen) through the loops on where the arrow would go. Pinch the pen into the rubber band, pull back, and let go. There you have it, how to make the bow fire. thanks for hanging in there! THIS ACTUALLY FIRES!

BobicusIX (author)2008-06-07

OK if this isn't on here I will not try to post this again. I am talking about an adjustable base

BobicusIX (author)2008-06-07

Just a little note: technically thats a cross bow, but I will build a stand for it and show it here some time, because balista have stands, but any way i just built it AND IT WAS GREAT , I fired it it went about 5 feet.... then it hit the wall. i didn't think it would be so great because of how small it was. Happy building

jollex (author)2008-05-20

Looks really handy. I might make.

dsman195276 (author)2008-05-19
