Construct your own historic war machine
This Onager (otherwise known as a Mangonel) uses the same principles as the ancient Roman torsion-based machine, but features added strength and accuracy. Hurl golf and tennis balls and more from 20 to 50+ feet!
Precision crafted of pre-drilled, pre-cut quality hard wood, the kit contains everything you need to construct a 17" l x 14" h x 12" w finished model. Includes a working winch, leather sling-pouch and detailed instructions. You provide the projectiles.
The detailed instructions are complete with diagrams, photos and tuning tips so you can get the most out of this fun project. All parts are pre-cut, pre-drilled and can be assembled to a finished model in one evening. It's a fun way to learn about history and engineering!
WARNING! This is a representative model of a real ancient military weapon. It contains a fast moving arm that can cause injury if you make contact when firing. Use only under strict adult supervision.
