Leonardo da Vinci's Submarine Model Kit
The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life through this articulated model. The invention that inspired this snap-together replica is taken from the pages of Da Vinci's priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks. All models are made of plastic and require no special tools. The included manual is very educational and can teach how these inventions have evolved into what they are today.
Leonardo designed his submarine as a boat with sails that has a part that is submerged in the water and invisible to enemies. The pilot used a passage to get into the lower part undercover thus orginating the idea of the Mechanical Submarine. A pulley and rope system lowers the submarine, which can unhook itself underwater and proceed invisibly towards the enemy. The submarine has two air chambers, which can be used for steering and for air needed by the pilot, who has a mouthpiece. Steering underwater is done by means of a mechanical system.
