The catapult has a long and interesting history. It has been around in many forms, evolving since about 400 BC. This model is based on the medieval styles that were used during the middle ages.
Standing 15 cm tall and 12 cm wide, this siege engine can shoot a plasticine ball over 15 feet! Adjustable pads on the crossbar allow you to change the trajectory angle. The rope, strung through the middle gives great power to the swing arm!
Age Rating: 14+ While the kit can be made by people younger than 14, (we think kids aged 9+ have the skills) it does launch a projectile, so is rated 14+. If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.
