Model Flying Machines: Their Design and Construction
RCL#1675

Model Flying Machines: Their Design and Construction - cover thumbnail  

"For the tens of thousands of men who have 'ideas' with regard to aerial vehicles, the model provides a simple and convenient method of experiment. Anyone possessed of a little patience, a few pence, a modest handful of cheaply acquired tools, and a trifling mechanical skill, can build a model sufficiently well to enable a demonstration of the principle upon which it is constructed."
