LAUNCHERS, LOBBERS, AND ROCKETS ENGINEER

Subtitle Make 20 Awesome Ballistic Blasters with Ordinary Stuff

Lance Akiyama
Description Description
After the huge successes of Rubber Band Engineer and Duct Tape Engineer, we finally take away the boundaries of a single category and let author Lance Akiyama create twenty devious weapons of backyard warfare.

Each of these launchers are made from PVC, soda bottles, rubber bands, hairspray cans, and anything you might find in the junk drawer, and are capable of firing marshmallows, poker chips, tennis balls, sponges, and plenty more.

This book is written for adults, but kids and teens can get in on the fun, too. Projects range from simple shooters to be built by novice crafters, to the more complicated Slide Action Rubber Band Gun, A Wrist-Mounted Crossbow, and even a Desk Drawer Booby Trap.
