Sorry they made that for a BBC show i think. And it did not work (thats not ture the first shot craked the left hand arm, they did get a 2nd but the stone ball went 50 feet0
Thats what you get when you dont lisen to experts in Roman siege ballista :roll:
"The Kaiser knows the Munsters,
by the Shamrock on their caps,
And the famous Bengal Tiger, ever ready for a scrap,
And all his big battalions, Prussian Guards and grenadiers,
Fear to face the flashing bayonets of the Munster Fusiliers."

Go bua

Greetings my friends.

Ciaran, I think that might be a little out of my price range. Now if they were selling a catapault small enough to fit on my telly then I might be able to afford that one. :lol:
