At Ugears, the new Balliste model with its Schüuuml;tzenturm is becoming a medieval model that invites you to become an expert in the art of siege. Inspired by the historical events of the time, with which legendary battles were fought, this model stages an epoch that is otherwise only known from films, Büchern and games, and reinterprets the classic defensive weapons. Train your accuracy, conquer foreign castles and immerse yourself in the Middle Ages, when knights liberated their early ones in distress.
And so it works:
The kit consists of two parts: the gun itself and the mechanical turret.
Both units are transportable and have a number of moveable details.
The ballista has two modules: the projectile and the base.
The platform on which the projectile rests has four adjustable projections which stabilize the projectile during firing. The projectile itself fires wooden bolts and allows it to fire four projectiles in a row. A special mechanism allows the ballista to align itself at any desired angle horizontally and vertically to hit the target as well as possible.
>Then the wheel intended for the tension of the projectile, located on the right side of the model, is mounted. At the same time as preparing the fire mechanism, one of the wooden bolts from the bearing device falls into the barrel. Now the ballista is ready to fire. For firing, press the lever also located on the right side of the model in front of the wheel.
The projectile can also be detached from the platform and fastened to the top of the turret. Both with and without a ballista, the turret has a special mechanism that allows the top plane to be extended upwards - simply turn the wheel on the side of the turret and lock the position with the lever underneath it. Once the tower is fully extended, the city coat of arms is fully visible on the wall and a spiral spiral staircase inside appears.
