Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build a Secret Agent Arsenal By John Austin Cover Image


If you’re 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 you’ve 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.
