Picked this up at walmart and threw it together today... Its not a fantastic paintjob but it'll do...



and another angle



heres a shot of the new rubber band like estes shockcord... im curious as to how it'll work compared to the elastic ones (odds are its gonna do the same thing)

its next to a big bertha elastic cord, so you can see the size difference... its the one ontop...

I don't know if it's supposed to be stronger or what, but it really worries me when they replace elastic shockcord with something 1/3 as thing and still stretchy...:(
