The Aerial Screw or Helicopter is one of Leonardo's most iconic images and it illustrates the ingenuity of da Vinci, and indicates his obsession with flying. It defines him as an inventor well ahead of his time. This model uses a bevel gear, also from his drawings, to spin the canopy and support structure, illustrating a way Leonardo thought flight might be possible. A fun and inspiring project spun from one of the great minds of history! The canopy and support structure are removeable for experimenting. Kit features pieces that are drilled and pegged for strength and are all pre-cut. Easy to make in about an hour. Assembled size is approximately H38cm x W23cm.
