A working re-creation of a Roman siege engine!
- A scale model of a Mangonel catapult
- Fire clay balls and other soft projectiles
- The perfect gift for beginner model makers!
A Roman Onager is a torsion-powered weapon similar to that of a catapult used in Ancient Rome.
This particular model uses a sling bucket to launch the included clay balls up to 4.5 metres across the room!
The original version used by the Roman Army had a strong recoil kick when fired. Now's your chance to compare the two designs!
