    Trebuchet

    created by marko on 2011.10.04

    Main Section
    Fully functional medieval siege equipment with original mechanism that fires bricks at approximately 75 cm - 1 meter with adjustable range thanks to the lever on top that controls the moment of triggering the sling.
    Proposed model consists of around 120 parts. Minifig scale.
    Powerful addition to any medieval army (past, present or future LEGO castle themes) laying siege from land or sea.
    Fun and educational.

    What a wonderful device for fighting off siblings...I mean attacking armies! Great design and functionality.

    Good luck as you swing toward 10,000 supporters!
