Picture of Paper Missile and Launcher
I call this an I.C.B.M. An Inter Cubicle Ballistic Missile.

Catapults, Trebuchets and crossbows... oh why? A missile will always make them cry...

Seriously there is always a need for greater firepower.

In the time it takes them to have a cigarette You can have a fully functional cubicle missile system.

Raid the supply closet...

You will need 2 sheets of card stock.
A little bit of masking tape
As much copy paper as you can carry...

You only need one launcher but possibly a thousand missiles....

I really want to make this! But,I can't understand the pictures! Could you please post video instructions?

I do not have a video of this but If I remake it I will post one
Thank you very much
Nice instructable, but some parts were kinda confusing. Mine turned out LOOKING great. Unfortunately, it didn't work as good as it looks. The missiles I made wouldn't launch. Any tips on making a "perfect" missile?

|Try making the missile tighter fitting to the launch tube. I had the same problem initially.

Let me know how you make out
Sorry for the extreme delay in responding

Since the launch tube moves with the bellows though doesn't it throw off aim? 0_o

It does. if you do not hold it. I only have 2 hands.

Typically you aim and hold the base of the launch tube with one hand then smack the bellows with the other.
This project looks very interesting to me. I am very likely to try to make quite a few.

As for paper "missiles" in general, I have found that paper missiles can be mounted on paper airplanes easiest when rectangular with pyramidal tips at their fronts. (I am also experimenting with these cones at the back for drag reduction).

i like this but i would not give up my onager, trebuchet or ballista for it.

PS. i have actually made them in 1:3, 1:6 and 1:1 scale models respectively.
