Why is it that manufacturers cannot provide some guidelines for assembling their products. I recently purchased a trebuchet and when I opened the bag I found a lot of pieces but nothing showing how it was supposed to go together. How hard would it be to include at least an exploded view showing what pieces went where? It's frustrating to spend the funds and not be able to easily figure out the assembly.

I had trouble with Battlefronts 40mm Bofors gun. I had to Google a number of photos to ascertain how it went together.

What's worse no instruction or bad instructions?

As Thomas implied, Google is your friend.

Even when I have very clear instruction, I'll still scan for images of the actual items.
