    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I've not been on here for a while but I've been busy building So here's a micro catapult I've just finished, you can judge the size by the 1inch keyring, I made the core from natural buffalo horn, I made things complicated by tapering it so it gets thicker towards the bottom of the handle, I then scaled it with 10,000+ years old mammoth Ivory which makes this frame very rare, mammoth Ivory is very expensive, the scale set these were cut from cost hundreds of pounds, again I made it more complicated by setting the scales in from the edge of the core rather then flush with it, I do this with all my old school builds, the pins are brass and copper, these micro slings have a charm about them that never fails to make me smile, cheers all.
