    That doesn't look half bad mate! The fletching looks way better than you'd described.
    If you stretch out both arms to represent all time on earth, then with one stroke of a nail file you could eradicate all human history, and 98 per cent of all human history was spent in the stone age.

    Yup, looks like a flu-flu! Lol, just without the extreme angles on the feathers.

    You could make it more streamlined by trimming the feathers down and rounding it. I made a couple flu-flus when I was a teen, used blue feathers and turned out a lot like yours (except aluminum shafts).

    I was thinking about that I have ran out of feathers at the min so I only have two on the new one at the min So I'm of to do an order for the New Year and I will see about getting some other stuff to help hold and stuff

    It looks as if you've bought both "business ends" of these, am I correct?
