Publisher Comments:

If youre a budding spy, what better way to conceal your clandestine activities than to miniaturize your secret agent arsenal? MiniWeapons of Mass Destruction 2 provides fully illustrated step-by-step instructions for building 30 different spy weapons and surveillance tools, including:

* Paper Dart Watch                 * Pen Blowgun

* Rubber Band Derringer          * Mint Tin Catapult

* Pushpin Dart                          * Cotton Swab .38 Special

* Toothpaste Periscope            * Paper Throwing Star

* Bionic Ear                             * And more!

Once youve assembled your weaponry, 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.

Synopsis:

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.

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.

Synopsis:

Culling common household items to create an uncommon arsenal of miniature gadgets and sidearms, this guidebook provides do-it-yourself spy enthusiasts with 35 different surveillance tools and weapons. From a mini-catapult in a breath-mint tin to milk-jug cap blow-dart wristwatches, this handbook details how to achieve clandestine ends practically and inexpensively. In addition to creating weapons such as periscopes, bionic ears, and grappling hooks, spies-to-be will find ideas on how to hide their stash—a deck of cards, a false-bottom soda bottle, or a cereal box-brief case—and tips for target practice. Clear diagrams and instructions make construction simple, while easy-to-follow safety tips help ensure DIY builders avoid injuries. Projects include a paper throwing star, a bowler hat launcher, and a Q-pick blow gun.
