Catapulta






Here are some images of Corel Models 1/25 scale Catapulta. This catapult dates back to the last years of the Roman Empire where construction techniques had made great advancements from the previous Onager catapult. These types of catapults were generally used on Roman Polyreme ships and usually placed at the stern. The maximum throwing distance of these catapults was usually around 350 meters. The materials used for this model were Walnut, Brass and Copper. This was a very easy model to build, no issues.
