Amazing working Roman Catapault (with hidden pencil sharpener) Fantastic historic model item with classic design. This accurate model of an early catapult would have been used by the Romans. The catapult measures 9cm wide X 7.5cm tall when unloaded. The arm of the catapult can be pushed back until it locks. It can then be fired be pressing the trigger. The catapult is supplied loose. For you to own - for your office, workshop, schoolroom, history project etc. Great for would-be historians, and Roman Lovers everywhere!!!! Put it on your desk and relive the beginning of the film Gladiator -- "on my word unleash hell!" Yes, you too can be Maximus commander of the Legion! -) A wonderful gift too! And what a stocking filler for Christmas!
