A working replica of a trebuchet.

I'm using the old boat weight bricks for the counterweight. These bricks aren't so common these days but really, anything heavy will do.

The instructions just show you how to build the brick structure. Obviously some string is also needed to make it work. You should be able to tell from the video what is needed. The sling should be about the length of the upper part of the arm. I'm using the cargo net that comes in many sets for the pouch, but a piece of cloth will also work.

Obviously the version I'm using in the video is coloured differently and has more decorative pieces. The instructions just show you how to make the basic frame in ugly colours. :)

The wheels in the instructions are different than the ones pictured above. Use whatever you have, or leave them out. They are not critical.
