Description: Inspire a new generation of budding engineers and makers with this fun, working bridge kit. Learn about Lift bridges from the past and present! Used mainly for railways, a lift bridge is a common sight around the world. This DIY kit, based on a truss design, will provide hours of imaginative play for kids of all ages. Scale model kit - easy to make in about an hour Great for beginner model makers All pieces pre-cut and ready to go Historically accurate details and a working span! One of the most common types of bridges for freight trains, our Truss Design Lift Bridge is a working replica of the many lift bridges that have been made over the last 100 years. Lift bridges became the workhorses of the freight railroads for many years as rail lines expanded over the rivers and ports of the world. The design was particularly useful in areas where there was no room for a bridge to swing, such as a busy industrial port. This bridge uses a small handle and crankshaft to lift the center span to the top of the truss structure, allowing trolls and other vehicles to safely pass between the two ends. The kit can be mostly made without glue and taken apart for storage. Snug slot construction and accurate cutting makes this possible! Model dimensions: Length: 380mm x Height: 250mm x Width: 75mm Approx. Kit contains: 24 wood pieces 1 screw eye 3 dowels String 6 x O rings Sandpaper Glue Great instructions and Educational material. Suitable for ages 7+

Description: Pathfinders Leonardo Da Vinci Bicycle The Leonardo Bicycle has an interesting and controversial history. The design itself would have been incredibly groundbreaking for the time, no inventor/engineer during that era had even considered a personal vehicle – of any kind (well, maybe a horse). A bicycle design was not seen until the 1800’s – over 300 years later! It is widely accepted that the image was not drawn by Leonardo, very likely a pupil of his, and we have, from the drawing, made a working model of what we think it might have looked like. Leonard did draw a chain in one of his codices, using links very similar to a bike chain now, which could have been used with it, but we have used an elastic band, since making a chain link so small would be very difficult. While there are doubters that Leonardo was the original artistic instigator of this bicycle idea, it flows well from many of the other drawings he did at the time – including things like an aerial screw, self propelled car, and ornithopter, to name a few.

Description: This catapult is one of Da Vinci's redesigns from the medieval catapults of 400 or so years earlier. While the Medieval catapult we made uses the force of twisted rope, this uses the tension stored in bent wood to hurl objects, usually over 15 feet. With no modifications you can experiment flinging with grapes, and those fun mini marshmallows too! Approximate size: 42 x 42cm. All pieces are pre-cut and drilled so the model is incredibly strong! Contains glue. Can be made in approximately 1 - 2 hours. Great for beginner siege builders!

Description: One of Leonardo's most iconic images, the Aerial Screw (also known as the Helicopter) illustrates the ingenuity of da Vinci, and indicates (along with many other drawings!) his obsession with flying. While this idea may never have got off the ground, for some basic technical reasons, 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 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. Our 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. All pieces are drilled and pegged for strength The canopy and support structure can be removed for experimenting. Lots of interesting information about the way it would have worked too! Stands 38 cm (15 inches) tall and 23 cm (9 inches ) across. Based on the inventor’s drawings from the Codex Atlanticus. This working recreation uses a bevel gear to spin the canopy and support structure, and bring to life the flying machine that Leonardo dreamed was possible. The canopy and support structure of the helicopter - designed to be powered by four men (or in this case Lego figurines!) - can be removed for experimenting with your own helicopter or wing-type systems. With accurate historic details, Pathfinder kits are renowned for their clever design and include quality materials. Easy to assemble in approximately an hour, with pre-cut and drilled pieces for super-strong connection. Ideal for beginner model-makers. Teaches principles of mechanics, physics and historical technology. Simple to follow with the help of detailed instructions - young inventors will relish reading about how the aerial screw would have worked.

Description: Leonardo Da Vinci was a prolific inventor and artist who came up with amazing ideas for machines to attack and defend the Lords and Dukes of the time. This armored tank is a unique design that had never been seen before and had an interesting drive train of gears to make it move. His gear design was technically incorrect, and many have hypothesized that he did it on purpose (in case the drawings were found by an enemy), and others thought that he did not understand what he had done. Judging by the incredible detail on so many of his machines drawings, it is unlikely he didn’t know what he was doing, perhaps he was just having some fun! We did not put the gears on the wheels (it is really small in there!) but the rest is all there, along with a platform for a lookout, and a removable top, so put on some Renaissance music and lets have some fun making one of Leonardo’s iconic machines! Made from sustainable forests All pieces pre-cut and ready to go Ages 8+ Diameter 200mm Height 170mm

Description: The Siege Tower was use by invading armies to breach the walls of the castle they were attacking. They varied in size and construction (some up to 135 feet tall!) but the one we have here is typical of the styles used from about 900 BC to the medieval times as attackers tried to get over the walls of a castle. This kit is pegged for greater strength and authenticity and will give you that cool siege feeling with the firing catapult on the top. Historically accurate, this kit creates a durable wood model that can be used for hours of imaginative play with Lego people and 1/18 scale medieval figures. Easy to assemble. All pieces are pre-cut and drilled, requires only scissors. Takes an hour or two to build. Great kit for beginners.

Description: Flying has always been a dream of humans, and Leonardo's fascination with birds and flight was evident in his studies of birds and different human powered flying machines. His ornithopter design has captured the imagination of people for generations, and we have combined his cool flying machine with one of his bevel gear designs to make a neat working model with flapping wings and a pilot with moving arms and legs. While it remains a mystery if his ornithopter design was ever fully made or tested at the time, there are many ideas (hanging in museums around the world!) of what it might have looked like, and we have added our ideas as well. All pieces precisely cut and drilled, fitting together with pegs, or timber - slot construction. Takes about 1 to 2 hours, with some building experience needed. ( Take your time, the building is a lot of fun!) Lots of interesting information about the way it would have worked too! Ages 9+ Dimensions Assembled: 500 x 350 x 300mm approx
