The Catapult kit is based on historic designs from the Middle Ages. The kit uses only wood, rope and leather. No elastic, rubber. motor or batteries are used to create the movement of the device's swing arms. All pieces are pre-cut and drilled requiring only wood or white glue to assemble. The instructions are detailed and complete with educational notes about the siege engine.
When completed, the Catapult stands 6 tall x 5 wide x 10 long. It can shoot a ball of soft modeling clay over 15 feet when properly tuned. (Modeling clay is included in the kit) They kit is suitable for children 10 and older taking about an hour or two to complete.
While the scale model will only be smashing down imaginary castle walls, they are loads of fun to build and play with.
