Based on his drawings from the Codex Atlanticus, Leonardo da Vinci's Ornithopter is one of his most iconic drawings. While it remains a mystery if his ornithopter design was ever fully made or tested at the time, there are many ideas of what it might have looked like if completed.

This model is combined with one of his bevel geared designs to make a moving ornithopter. The wooden pieces are pre-cut and as the wood is untreated it can also be painted.
