  • Description

    This wooden model is based on Leonardo da Vinci’s famous sketch of a catapult from the 1480s.  No one knows if it was ever actually built, as gunpowder had already been invented by then so interest in catapults may have been on the wane, but what we do know is that you can make it at home.  Admittedly its far smaller than da Vinci intended, but making it will give you an insight into his genius and firing it will be a lot of fun. The pawl and ratchet system tightens as the arm is pulled back and when fired the plasticine ball will wreak havoc on any invading armies!

    The kit includes everything you will need to make a working model that has a base of 25x14cm.  Assembly typically takes around 1 hour and is suitable for age 8 and over.  Wood glue is included in the kit, but it is possible to make it without the glue and to take it apart afterwards.
