Hello I have just reread the brief and remembered that the 260 balloons are tied in the circle shape.

Hello, thank you for your feedback,
I am aiming to submit the model updated to your specifications really soon.
There are some points that i think i need to consider, let me know if i am right about this:
- the thickness should not be to big, we don’t want arrows to hit the support to much or break it ( i am aiming to make the side facing the archer in such shape that it deflects the arrow into the balloon towards. If it is flat it would be like shooting the arrow into a wall, might even damage the arrow)
- after adjusting the first entry to your requirements, i will add another that fight “fix” one of my concerns : the 260 balloon will not keep the shape of a circle unless something holds both ends in place, each end will stay straight and tangent to the last point it touches in the support, i have already thought of a simple solution for this, and also a minimalist version of your target,
In total i will and at least two models for you to consider.

Best regards
Peter

Thanks for your entry, while I like the general concept, here are my concerns.
The balloons should all be as flat against the back as possible which also means that the 4inch center balloon will need arms that stick out further (see screenshot in attachments)
