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.
