Enter, The Flying Dragon... Bring to life the dragons of your imagination with this magical flying dragon automata kit from Pathfinders.

Automata are mechanical toys that move in a lifelike way—turn the crank, and the body moves back and forth, the wings flap, the legs go up and down, and the neck, tail and head move in a graceful motion.

Build it, then paint or decorate it to your liking for a striking combination of science and art. Made with real plywood, this beginner/intermediate kit is a wonderful educational project for kids and adults to share together. All pieces are pre-cut and drilled.

Includes all timber pre-cut dragon pieces, dowels, plastic tubing, string, screw eyes, sandpaper, white glue and instruction booklet.

Learn about simple machines and engineering with this special kit. The automaton incorporates a crank shaft, axle, crank-slider, a follower, rigid and flexible linkages, pivots, and hinges. The finished automaton will need a bit of tuning to work smoothly.

Ages: 9 +
