Taking on many different forms throughout the Medieval world, Da Vinci's Trebuchet is considered by many, to be the most powerful and destructive of all siege engines, designed to hurl huge rocks and giant fireballs into castles!
This particular model (based on the Warwolf) is a fully-functioning table top replica of a Trebuchet built in the 13th century. Standing at 67cm tall and 48cm wide, the Trebuchet is easy to make in 1-2 hours for intermediate model makers and comes complete with soft clay balls for you to practice your shooting skills within a 6 metre radius!
With accurate historical details such as pegged points, a leather sling for loading your ammunition and a wooden box for weights, the Trebuchet makes an ideal school experiment for math or science. You can even vary the weight, angle and lengths of your firing mechanism to obtain a range of different results!
Made from natural wood for durability, each wooden piece is pre-cut and drilled for a super strong connection.
Recommended for ages 9 and up.
You will require scissors and wood glue to complete your project.
