With the completion of the Steampunk HK MP5 project in sight, I’m feeling confident in pulling out another of my oldest projects — the Slingshot Rifle aka the Flintstones Rifle. It sounds easy enough, but you know I need to over complicate every project to the point of impossibility. Anyways, I’ve had a few good ideas pop into my head over the past couple days. All I need now is some leather, a walking stick, and a few ounces of artistic ability. In lieu of the last, I’ll opt for plenty of bandages. Of course, a bit of research is needed here, but other than shipping time, I don’t see anything really holding me back from completing this project rather quickly. But then, that isn’t really my way.
Good progress on the gun. I really need the leather cord, but I can still do the decorating.
Later the same day…
I’ve done as much decorating as I can until I get the leather cord.
The leather cord just arrived. The end is in sight.
I’ve completed the leather wrapping, but I’m not certain how to attach the “elastic” cord without making it look like a child’s project? Anyways, I’ve had a few more brain storms and have ordered some tree bark. In addition, I’ve decided I can’t include all my ideas in this one project, so i’ll most likely make another stonepunk gun.
Later that same day…
I now see it needs more decoration. I’d like to add some paintings, but am afraid I’ll foul it up. Anyways, here’s the pics of the WIP.
