    Trebuchet

    created by exemplarinc on 2012.09.02

    Main Section
    An authentic, fully functional, reproduction of the infamous and deadly Trebuchet; a medieval machine of war capable of hurling large boulders (in this case a small plastic LEGO ball) or flaming projectiles, to destroy an enemy castle’s walls.

    The machine uses a heavy counterweight pendulum, and is thereby considered superior to the traditional catapult, to generate tremendous throwing force (i.e., the LEGO ball can be thrown a maximum distance of about 15-20 feet).

    Model dimensions: duh... I forgot to measure them, but you get a sense of the scale from the hand in the above photo.

    Visit exemplarinc.ca and/or mocpages.com for more details and higher resolution photos of this and other LEGO creations. Thanks for your support!

    The dangling leather sling can just be made out at the top of this photo. This is the top portion of the A-frame design.
