Thats it I give up. Every damn day I get pinged with free loaders looking for plans. Well fine! There you go, fill yer boots.
Full size? That’s as big as it’s going to get. What do you think this is, freaken gift week?
Update – This is now my most popular post and its managed to cement its place in google due to the attentions of a number of people who get very bitter and twisted about me not handing over several years work to them for the bargain basement price of zippidy do dah.
Well since it’s so popular I’ve punted it back to top for all my regular readers to take another look. Feel free browse the comments and see if you can pick which of the three are now in either in possession of free copies of my table top mangonel or trebuchet plans or will have theirs soon. Yes thats right in fact I DO give away free plans under certain conditions.
1. I’ll give you help with a school project including the free plans and assistance with fixing the problem which resulted from you not following those plans. I do like to encourage people to learn about their history, destroy things in a technical culturally appropriate manner and hope to sell some of them something really destructive (and expensive) at a later date.
2. They ask nicely.
Please note I have no intention of justifying my not giving you freebees any more and comments like jacks – firstname.lastname@example.org – which amount to “you’re a big poopie head” will no longer be permitted to get through moderation. Jack was emailed and asked to offer an explanation but did not avail himself of the opportunity so he gets some free advertising.
A lot of younger people find their way here and while you may fall out of chair at the concept I do not approve of that sort of language being used in front of minors. Some comments will be deleted in a few days for this reason. (If you’re under 18 or your parents are democrats you probably shouldn’t read anything else on this site.)
Also worthy of not is that my new website – 22AD – is in production and will be up in about a weeks time. Amongst all the fun stuff posted here you will be able to buy plans, parts and small kit sets. There will also be details on the upcoming WMD End of Season Fling for locals and I’ll even be hosting one set of free plans so even obnoxious poorly raised little maggots like jack will be able to use them.
UPDATE 2: FREEBEES! As a special treat for those of you with school projects I’ve done half your homework for you.
Ok first up we have this very nice Medieval Trebuchet paper model by Sheila Mertens. Click on the image to go to her site. It makes a detailed and functional model but it is paper so don’t expect it to throw bricks.
Secondly these plans are all over the place and you’ll find them by doing an image search for trebuchet plans in about 30 seconds just like I did.
While I approve of kids learning about siege engines in school I am concerned that the concepts of initiative and self reliance seem to be neglected for some of you.
If neither of these will do what you need and you have a school project then email me and I’ll see what I can do.
This post now carrys a PG rating. If you’re over 12 you can read the comments but your parents may object.
Email addresses that include profanity probably shouldn’t get published Fjord, even if you use Professor Spooner to do your dirty work.
And for Oswald…
Finally why not stop by Ron Toms and buy something?
UPDATE: Heres you’re very own free Trebuchet plan. I sugest you read the post carefully.
UPDATE: Go here if you’re looking for a ballista plan and want to answer some questions on the subject.
