I´m working on a castle siege diorama and there´s no siege without siege weapons. So I´ve made this trebuchet by using balsa wood and a bit of plastic. And it really works . Not a huge range but better than nothing. Hope you like it.

Surprisingly accurate work! I stared for a long time - great! It's over, or will do some more to add?
