Ready, aim, fire! Build a working trebuchet and launch a soft clay ball over 6 metres!
Considered by many to be the most powerful and destructive of all the siege engines, the trebuchet took many forms throughout the medieval era, hurling huge rocks, giant fireballs and even diseased (yes, really!) animals at, and into castles.
With accurate historic details such as pegged joints, a leatherette pouch for the projectile, and a wooden box for weights. Pathfinder kits are renowned for their clever design and quality materials.
This working 13th Century trebuchet is easy to assemble with pre-cut and drilled pieces for super-strong connection. The only tool you'll require is scissors. Ideal for beginner model-makers.
Teaches principles of mechanics, physics and historical technology. Lay siege to snacks on the coffee table, have slinging competitions outdoors, or take over a Lego fort! Hours of historic fun for everyone!
