Dated: October 23, 2008.
Attached are seven images of the new Greek Catapult (8184). The crew are in the process of drawing the bow before loading the weapon. Two men are standing by with the choice of projectile, stones for lobbing into massed formations, or darts to taking down high value targets. The commander's assistant holds the lock on the trigger secure while another man works the corresponding ratchet to draw back the bowstring. When the string is fully drawn, the commander will take over and make any final adjustments to the aim before selecting the projectile and giving the order to "loose" - they did not say "fire" until much later.
I enjoyed building this kit and found the new plastic makes assembling such pieces very easy.
