Build It! Make It! Mini Battle Machines (Makerspace Models)
This creative and inspiring book is filled with illustrated instructions on how to build your own medieval weapons and structures. Most of the ideas only require household objects and common craft items. Some of the creations include a drawbridge, siege tower, trebuchet, onager, rocket launcher, crossbow, and so much more! Features a total of 25 different models. This is a great resource for youngsters (and even older folks) with engineering minds who love to build and create things. Some of the projects require adult supervision. I personally know a youngster (age 9) who loves to make little creations and really enjoyed some of the ideas in this book. He would often bring the finished projects around the office to show staff members! 93 pgs, hc. ~ Brianna
