First shots

Here is a quick video of the first shots with a prototype of the small Trebuchet.

This small Trebuchet is not available separately, it is a gift for those customers who buy the complete Medieval Stainless Steel series.

This is the first prototype and the results are good enough that we do not need to build a second one. We will use this one to test sling length, trigger mechanism and projectile weight. Then it will be put in the Danger Toys museum. To be cherished forever.

First shot with the small Trebuchet prototype

This first shot went about 3 meters. That is not bad for the first prototype and certainly not for the small Trebuchet. Especially is you recognize the fact that this is with a small fixed weight.  We have not even looked at sling length and release angle yet. So there is more to come.

Second shot of the Prototype

This second shot is with a shorter sling length and yes, we managed to go to about 4 meters. That is enough for now, the real testing and adjusting will be done later and will also be done on the full sized Trebuchet. But for now, we are more than happy with this.

We have added some options

The wonderful MSS series of war machines now have new optional items.Flight case for Trebuchet

We have added custom built flight cases, each designed to hold the device securely and safely. They are made of a combination of black covered wood with an aluminium frame. They look good enough to be used as a display stand for the device.

We thought of adding a granite pedestal as well, but the weight of granite these days! If you want to place your device on a stone pedestal, please source your pedestal locally.

New Website

As you can see Danger-Toys has a new website.Danger-Toys logo

We cleaned up the layout, integrated a shop (oh yes, you can now buy a Danger-Toy) and made it all a lot more readable and user friendly.

We hope you like it.

The logo is designed by the Perpetro Group, the styling is done partly by Paradym, partly by Danger-Toys and the content is growing as we speak. It has been a collaborative effort and it was fun to do.
