My close mates know about my catty's/slingshots but only them really. I've never really had any problem because of slingshots.

Thanks! :)

Thanks!

Decided to wet sand it again to get rid of the scratches after dropping it. Began to polish it as well now, looks alright :)

Hi when you come to the final polish use Brasso or Duraglit :thumbsup:

Right everyone, here is the finished product!

I've really enjoyed working with aluminium and will carry on doing so and improving any skills further!

If anyone has any suggestions of what I could make, I would really appreciate it :)

Cheers Luke

Looks great. I haven't the patience to make aluminum shine. Hope it shoots as well as it looks.
