Hopefully a quick one. This is a 200mm ballista. So named because its 200mm long, or 12th scale. Its the first of 27 models for display at the museum later this year and will be used in the presentation I deliver to the powers that be there next week.
All wood parts are rimu and the metalwork is all precision cut brass. Depending on the production costs it may become a kitset model, an ancient version of the popular brass and wood Civil war connon that people have. I’ve chosen 12th scale because although it makes a fairly small model at this end the lithobolos and trebuchet are both over a meter long and getting quite large.
As always feel free to help the projects along with a donation.
