As a project for the Cub Scouts, for this year’s summer camp, I am constructing a pair of sling-shot style catapults for the kids. This weekend was the final time I have to finish them, and I managed to complete all the pieces and do at least a test assembly. The real test of course will be putting them together and seeing if they actually work, but that won’t come until the start of summer camp on June 19. In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures.
The first is of one of the “legs”, assembled to test how rigid it ends up being. The second is of the stack of pieces, ready for transport to the summer camp location (where they will be put together for use during the week).
Hopefully will have a few additional pictures from the week itself.
