This amazingly detailed do-it-yourself model starts out as a 4-inch square steel sheet. After you follow the detailed instructions, it turns into an attractive 3D model of the Wright Brothers Wright Flyer.
The airplane is approximately 3 inches long when completed. Making it requires patience and attention to detail, and it is a fun project for anyone who loves aviation.
Starting with the records of National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, formed in 1915 to study problems of flight and conduct research in aeronautics, the National Archives holds in trust records of NASA and other documents related to aeronautics, including the Wright brothers' patent for their flying machine.
