Retro Ballistics!

  • Kit to build your own trebuchet.
  • Show your love of retro weaponry.
  • Great for history buffs, teachers, and weapons fanatics.

In the days before gunpowder (at least in the west), folks had to find new and intriguing ways to throw death and destruction at each other. They started by throwing rocks, then progressed to hurling giant stones, and then to flinging boulders. The evolution of the machines used to accomplish this hurling is as intriguing as the things hurled. Many times trash and debris were lobbed over castle walls to rain down upon unsuspecting masses or invading armies.

These kits let you bring back all the fun of flinging. Each one can assemble in just a few hours, and provides a fantastic scale model of an actual war weapon of yore. The trebuchet is better for long range targets (like the water cooler or networked printer). And, all you need to put them together are some strong fingers (or pliers), a cutting tool, and glue (not included). The Wooden Trebuchet Kit is perfect for showing your love of retro weaponry.

Please Note: Though these kits are for educational purposes, they are functional. Care should be taken when constructing and using them. Don't use anything living as a target or projectile. Because kits must be glued together, opened kits are non-returnable.
