    I believe this is a catapult, not a trebuchet. I may be wrong. Good job though.

    This is a catapult. The only difference is that a trebuchet has a rope or string at the end of the arm at the end of which is the shot, as opposed to just the shot being launched off the end of the arm, which is this build.
