Catapult designed by Leonardo da Vinci * Powered operation provided by a rubber band/actually works * Snap together - no glue or tools required * Historically accurate and educational * No painting required Academy Models has effectively transcribed pages out of Leonardo Da Vinci's 13,000 pages of notes and drawings to allow mechanically curious modelers to put together a real working catapult model kit. The Da Vinci Model Catapult is molded in brown with a wood-like appearance to simulate the materials city-siegers would have used at the time, even though the flexible tree limbs have been replaced by rubber bands for throwing power. This Da Vinci model kit snaps together and is molded in brown so no paint or glue is necessary, and there are even pads for the base of the catapult to add stability and prevent scratches on surfaces.
We bought this for our 9yr old girl that loves constructing things. We did have to help her but once put together, the options to catapult were fun! Marshmallows, wet paperballs, whoppers and so much more. Enjoy, a great product to learn and play.
