Bleriot-XI

Thumbnail
The Bleriot XI also had some ground-breaking technologies such as castering landing gear, allowing for crosswind landings. Wing warping (instead of ailerons) controlled the plane's roll. The tail section of the Bleriot XI included a horizontal stabilizer with an elevator, and a rudder, but no vertical stabilizer.

DaVinci-Airscrew

Thumbnail
Though the first actual helicopter wasn’t built until the 1940s, it is believed that Leo's sketches from the late fifteenth century were the predecessor to the modern day flying machine. As with many DaVinci’s ideas, he never actually built and tested it – but his notes and drawings mapped out exactly how the device would operate.. Perfect 'A' magnet school project !!

Wallis-Rigby

Thumbnail
A tribute to Wallis Rigby, some of his models, and their importance they played from the 30s, during WWII and on to the 1950s. His models were quite basic compared to present day computerized card models but there certainly is a delightful charm to them.. Last but not least, they provided cheap but educational war toys for the kiddies when metal and wood was in acute shortage.
