    Lewis Pride, Mark Johnson. I have both of their works, some of the best of the best. In the UK, which is not a problem at all. You are talking money here.

    The purple is a Thanos themed S2. Brass core, clips, and accents, purple resin with gold metallic powder, and translucent pins in the cup for the infinity stones. The red one is also an S2, but completely different. Carnage themed. Red, black, and silver resin swirl. Both are amazing in their own right.

    Beautiful pieces. I have seen Dan on youtube showing off his work. i must say that i am really feeling the more modern look. I'm sure i will end up with a few works from diff people. One of my other hobbies are yoyos and i have 8 of those. .

    I really love my scout lt and. Those examples hold a similar profile id prob y enjoy one of those

    These two he had already built and I bought them, but the one with the bear tooth in the handle is his signature design, the lions paw. I have others from him that I picked the design and everything

    Have a look at Island Made Catapults by Shane MacArthur. He's a toolmaker/machinist and machines them entirely from blocks of any metal.

    I got to go with Mone Waller . He is a local guy and I like to support local business. But, he makes some great stuff under his back yard tarp haha. Seriously though….
