The Leonardo da Vinci Crossbow Miniature is a working re-creation of his 15th Century design.
The Giant Crossbow is one of Leonardo’s most epic weapons. He made drawings of many crossbow styles, and this one was designed to launch stone balls, instead of arrows, like more crossbows. We don’t know if it was ever made, but it sure was big!
Easy to make in about 10 mins
MDF wood pre-cut and ready to assemble (some glue needed)
Great STEM lit to learn about levers and simple machines, combined with history and launching things!
