Trebuchet is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by marko on October 4th, 2011.  It features a trebuchet that is both functional and historically accurate. A video showcasing its functions can be found here.

This message was written by the creator of the project. Do not modify the message in any way.

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.
