Trebuchet

Posted by Ben90 on 08 Jan 2012, 20:01

Not yet finished, some details are missing. The trebuchet is made of balsa wood. I need it for a castle siege diorama I´m working on... hope you like it (and it really works :cheers: )

That would have been huge in real life!

Also I always admire modellers who make their pieces as something more than static displays :cheers:

I modified the Zvezda one to throw like a trebuchet. It was an interesting problem and needed lots of modification. I filled the weight box with little stones as it appears you have done in this one.
A lot of people have made models of trebuchets but they don't work or they don't throw properly. Yours looks like it works well.

Hi Ben, that looks good already!
Did you followed some plans?
A fellow modeller built one at 1/25 and the material is paper (http://forum.modelismo-na.net/viewtopic.php?f=156&t=17720&start=75)...
I was thinking about using the plans for 1/72 anyway.

No plans... just a picture of the zvezda trebuchet from the internet.
