Achilles’ Chariot – Download and Build!

Build your own Chariot of Achilles with this print-your-own kit!

A model of a Mycenaean chariot, based on frescos and pottery images, with the two immortal horses Xanthos (‘Bay’) and Balios (‘Dappled’) and Achilles and his charioteer, Automedon, and an optional display stand!

Also includes Hektor’s Corpse, in a hidden layer you can reveal and print should you wish.

A must for every Greek Mythology or Archaeology fan, student of Classics, or teacher with a classroom to furnish. Just add a printer, paper, scissors and glue!

This set complements the rest of the Iliad Playset – print at about 50% size for correct comparability sizing; see if your printer will print 2 pages to a sheet of A4

**Print in full colour, or turn off the colour layers and print in black and white to colour in yourself! Instructions for layers included.**

Pro tips:

  • blow it up from A4 to A3 for an even more impressive structure.
  • print onto stiff card, or mount card between layers, to allow the horses to stand up.

*Example photos built with on 300gsm printer card, Pritt Stick and PVA/Copydex glue*

NB: You will need a free PDF Reader, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, to use this file. Just search online.
