Examine da Vinci's improvements to the catapult and other machines with these hands-on kits. Components are molded in wood-colored, wood-grained plastic for a realistic feel. Each model comes with pre-cut, snap-together plastic pieces, illustrated assembly instructions, and information on the history of the invention. Some of the pieces are a little tricky to join, so an adult might need to supervise. Each finished model has moving parts and would look great on a desk top or book shelf.
