Old Fashioned Catapults - Pt2

I got round to finishing off the catapults i was making, the two outer ones are made from Elm and have traditional square catapult elastics fitted, the central one is made from Hazel and is fitted with a weaker latex elastic, as the wood is not as strong and i very much doubt if it would withstand the pressure of the square laccy, all three feature leather pouches.

The only no traditional thing is the elastics are secured with cable ties, rather than being whipped with button thread, I've tried all three with steel ball bearings and they are all fairly powerful and accurate.
