Description

In da Vinci's original drawings, this stone throwing siege catapult showed gears, a release mechanism, and a solid wood base. His catapult's force was acquired from the tension stored in two flexible wood limbs. The designers at Academy followed the basic drawing to capture the essence of this mechanical masterpiece. Beautifully detailed working model kit is easy to build, with no glue, paint or tools required and complete step-by-step instructions. Once assembled, this rubber band powered catapult can actually hurl scale boulders up to 15 feet or more.

Arguably one of the most diversely talented and accomplished individuals to have ever lived, Leonardo da Vinci was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, botanist and writer. Often described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, da Vinci's unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his inventive genius.

A master of technological ingenuity, Leonardo conceptualized, among many others inventions, a helicopter, a tank, a paddleboat, a self-propelling cart, concentrated solar power, a calculator, the double hull and outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. As a scientist, he greatly advanced the state of knowledge in the fields of anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics.
