 +====== Building a scale Trebuchet ======
 +Prepare for attack! Man the siege engines. This project is all about building a scaled version of a medieval trebuchet. ​
 +A trebuchet ( /​ˈtrɛbəʃɛt/​ treb-ə-shet or /​ˌtrɛbjʊˈʃɛt/​ treb-ew-shet;​[1] French: trébuchet) is a siege engine that was employed in the Middle Ages. It is sometimes called a "​counterweight trebuchet"​ or "​counterpoise trebuchet"​ in order to distinguish it from an earlier weapon that has come to be called the "​traction trebuchet",​ the original version with pulling men instead of a counterweigh. (http://​​wiki/​Trebuchet)
 +===== Progress =====
