A big majority of people who love gadgets also love to build things. It is evident in the hobbies that they usually get into. The fascination with building could be traced to how gadget lovers love to find out what makes different things work and how different elements come together to make a complex machine.
I myself love to build stuff. I’m into model making and building different contraptions using a variety of materials that I find at home. If you’re like me too AND you also have a fascination with history and ancient weaponry then you should check out the Wooden Catapult and Trebuchet Kits. These awesome wood kits contain all the things you need to build a catapult or a trebuchet (each kit has its own separate parts). The materials are made from smooth wood so you won’t have to worry about suffering from splinters (like what happens with those cheap wood kits). It takes an hour or so to assemble everything, the exact time will be largely dependent on your building skills and dexterity. The cool thing is that these kits are not just replicas that you can only look at. These are perfectly working trebuchets and catapults, with real moving parts. You’ll see the whole principle of how catapults and trebuchets propel their payload and admire the differences in how they do it. But of course, the coolest, coolest part is that you can invite a friend over and you can reenact battles using these two weapons. Or you can buy more than one kit, build them and what you’ll have is the start of what could be an awesome diorama. Just get small figures to represent people. The Battle for Minas Tirith, anyone? Unleash you’re your interests with the esoterica of war or fantasy with these kits and you’ll have hours of fun without having to rely on your electronic gadgets. We do need some old school enjoyment sometimes.
