The dream of flying seems just as fantastic in the beginning as its further development up to space travel. The models of the first aviation pioneers, initially designed without a drive, were based on sketches and further developments of the flight constructions developed in the 15th century, which none other than Leonardo da Vinci designed. To generate lift, speed is required and thus a ramp or an aircraft starter is reminiscent of the beginnings of aeronautics.
That with oneElastic band operated Wooden model from UGEARS uses one Blaster pistol as a drive and allows the attractive glider to sail out into the wonderful expanse. Like all models from this brand manufacturer, the 198 individual parts of the model kit are assembled in the style of steampunk and are thus artistically based on post-modern retrofuturism. With its openwork mode of action, this serves as a visual object of mechanical worlds that imitate the kinetic behavior of the butterfly's wing. The present flight model from UGEARS therefore flutters rather than sails. Completely detached, the artful still life conquers every wall unit and is equally suitable for art connoisseurs and model building enthusiasts..
