Close the gates - we're under attack!
Breach your enemies' walls in no time with this fully-functional medieval siege tower. Siege towers were a key commodity in battle from about 900BC and allowed soldiers to reach the ramparts of castle walls under attack.
Historically accurate, this sturdy model includes a working torsion-powered catapult on top (that fires projectiles up to 4.5 meters), removable ladders, and a drawbridge that raises and lowers.
Use it with figurines and incorporate it into imaginative play scenes with scale castles. Or enjoy the quality build and showcase the fine historic detail, like the pegged joints and twisted string providing power to the catapult, on your shelf.
Each natural timber piece (no paint or coating) is pre-cut and pre-drilled for ease of assembly and strength. All you need is scissors. The completed model stands over 38cm tall.
