Product description

As a budding spy, what better way to conceal your clandestine activities than to miniaturize your secret agent arsenal? Hide a mini catapult in a breath mint tin. Turn a Tic Tac case into a vest-pocket candy shooter. Or transform a milk jug cap into a fake wristwatch that launches tiny paper darts. Toy designer and author John Austin provides detailed, step-by-step instructions with diagrams to show James Bondiacs how to build 35 different spy weapons and surveillance tools. All of the projects in MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction 2 are built from common household items - binder clips, playing cards, rubber bands, markers, clothespins, paper clips, and discarded packaging - clearly detailed on materials lists. In addition to movie-inspired sidearms and other "weapons," you?ll find plans to construct periscopes, bionic ears, grappling hooks, and decipher pens. Once you have assembled your arsenal, the author provides a number of ideas on how to hide your stash - inside a deck of cards, a false-bottom soda bottle, or a cereal box briefcase - and targets for practicing your spycraft, including a flip-down firing range, a fake security camera, and sharks with laser beams. And if you think yourself more of an evil genius in training, this book also has projects to keep you busy while you finish planning your volcano lair - a Q-pick blow gun, a paper throwing star, a bowler hat launcher, and more. Fluffy Persian cat not included
