Pathfinders Leonardo da Vinci Premium Aerial Screw (Helicopter Flying Machine) Wood Model Kit

One of Leonardo’s most iconic images, the Aerial Screw (also known as the Helicopter) illustrates the ingenuity of da Vinci, and indicates his obsession with flying. While this idea may never have got off the ground, it gave us an insight into the different ways in which Leonardo considered the challenge of human powered flying, and defines him as an inventor and visionary well ahead of his time.

While it is often referred to as a helicopter, the premise of the lift to make it rise is more like Archimedes Screw than the rotors of a helicopter. This model uses one of the bevel gears he drew in his codices and creates a nice 2 to 1 increase in speed of the crankshaft, so the mast spins quickly, illustrating the manner in which this machine would have worked.

The kit features pieces that are drilled and pegged for strength, the canopy and support structure are removable for experimenting, and lots of interesting information about how it works. Kit stands about 15″ tall and 9″ across.

The original Ford Bronco could be considered to be ahead of its time. It was Ford’s first compact SUV vehicle, a category which has become so popular today. The Bronco remained basically unchanged from 1966 to 1977, and has extended to 5 generations. Based on a 92 inch wheelbase, the first Bronco was intended as an off-road multi-purpose truck with 4 wheel drive. The base price was under $2,200 when it was introduced. The original Bronco offered a long list of options, but still remained a very basic vehicle. It was designed with a clear sheet, and unlike the Mustang, it did not use an existing platform. There were two engines to choose from, a straight 6 cylinder or a more powerful small block V-8, and three body styles, a wagon, a half-cab or a roadster.
