Ballistas were used in Roman times and taken up in the Medieval period. The mechanism is like a giant cross bow, but the tension is produced by twisted ropes. Just peg, glue then turn the handle to make it move. Making a Timberkit is to step into the whole world of Automata, ingenious moving models and scenes. It is an art form in which you can appreciate the magic of mechanical action and a fascinating education and hobby for children and adults of all ages.

After you have made the model you can paint, varnish or customise it in your own personal way then try another! Enjoy the warmth of the natural wood, sourced from sustainable forestry and fully machined with no further need for specialist tools.

All wooden components are shaped and drilled. Includes comprehensive instructions.
