CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Just add glue, scissors and an appreciation for the physics and art behind these medieval siege engines. High-quality models hurl a small ball more than 15 feet in 1 throw, with adjustable pads that change the trajectory angle and encourage experimentation for greater accuracy. Pre-cut, pre-drilled solid wood pieces are easy to assemble; models can be build in about 1 to 2 hours.
From the Manufacturer
Builds a working catapult with accurate historic details such as pegged joints and twisted string providing power. Quality design and materials. When finished, the Pathfinder Catapult is capable of hurling a ball of soft modeling clay over 15 feet.

Top customer reviews
As noted by another reviewer, when the catapult arm strikes the cross-bar, it does so with a lot of impact if you have the thread wound tightly. I affixed a piece of felt furniture padding to it to dampen the strike. About a hundred shots so far without any cracks in that cross bar.
Still very happy with this little guy, but the impact of the arm striking the crossbar even with the felt pad I added over time caused several of the glue in the dowel holes to crack and loosen. I made another mod by adding a rubberband running from the back base to the arm to dampen the throw about an inch before it hits the bar. This actually makes the device work better as it provides a touch more loft to the projectile.
I would recommend this for children studying the Middle Ages/Medieval period, engineering, physics, or ones who just like to build and fling things.
If you just want a model of a catapult, this one is perfect. Fun to build, well made.
