Considered by many to be the most powerful and destructive of all the siege engines, the trebuchet took many forms throughout the Medieval world, hurling huge rocks, giant fireballs and even diseased animals at (and into) castles.
This model, based on the Warwolf, is a tabletop working replica of a trebuchet made in the 13th Century.
Standing 26 inches (67 cm) tall by 18 inches (48 cm wide) this model will shoot balls of plasticine (included) over 20 feet! Please be careful of what (or whom) you take aim on, this thing can really let loose.
· Model is pre-cut and each joint is drilled for super strong connection.
· Comes with a leather-like sling and some soft modeling clay for safe hurling!
· Has an excellent, easy to read and understand building manual with 19 clear illustrations.
· Can be built in 1 to 2 hours with little modeling experience needed.
Great for STEM programs!
