"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 vest-pocket candy shooter. Or transform a milk jug cap onto 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, ora 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.
