What are the similarities and differences between a windmill and a Boeing 747? This question is not at all absurd, and the main difference is that the mill does not fly and the plane does not grind grain. And the basic principle of their work is the same - the conversion of air energy into mechanical work. And the main mechanism of these different devices is the turbine - a system of wheels with blades.
Immediately after the invention of the wheel, people began to think that it was possible to make wind and water do the work. Millennia of development of this idea have led humanity to power plants, turbojet engines and a huge leap in development.
Turbines of different configurations and designs set in motion mechanisms, generate electricity, extract minerals, help us warm in the cold and refresh in the heat. Therefore, we can rightfully consider this invention one of the main results of the technical thinking of mankind.
The engineers of Metal Time created the Air Force model so even the people who far from technology could experience what is to harness the energy of the air and make it move in the right direction. And is it better to explain to children how an aircraft engine works than to assemble a turbine wheel with your own hands and start it?
The Air Force model is a non-trivial workout for the mind and hands. To assemble it, you will have to concentrate and do everything very accurately. Because the turbine is a delicate mechanism that will work correctly only with the perfectly accurate position of all the parts, and there are more than a hundred of them in this model.
Fortunately, in the "Metal Time" constructors, steel plates are very precisely cut into parts by a laser plotter, and you will only have to follow the instructions for assembly, do not rush and do not worry. And as a result, a massive, bright, functional model will flaunt on your table that will surprise your guests.
The "Air Force" can rotate thanks to the electric motor and create a gentle breeze that will call you in pursuit of new experiences. The golden color of the case and mechanism gives the model the appearance of a status gift that will look worthy in high-class interiors. You can present the Air Force model to your friends who are keen on the sky, to reward the aviator for the impeccable work , and please your child with a unique toy.
Assembling of the model will become a unifying game for the family, during which you can tell your loved ones about how power plants and aircraft engines work, as well as what turbocharging is under the hood of your favorite car.
Like all the Metal Time models, «Air Force» is made of sustainable food grade stainless steel approved for consumer goods and toys. Precise cutting of the set eliminates the possibility of cuts during the assembling process. The parts fit accurately together and will not create problems with connecting.
Pleasant tactile sensations, durability and aesthetics of matte metal distinguish the steel parts from wooden or plastic ones used in other constructors. Convenient flat packaging made from sustainable recyclable cardboard combines compactness and the aesthetics of a status gift.
Each buyer of the "Metal time" model receives a club badge, a thank you card and a unique number assigned to each model. Joining the Metal Time club opens up additional opportunities for each customer.

Easy to fold
All parts are separated and connected with light finger pressure, which eliminates possible cuts or pricks during the assembly process.
The Metal Time kits comprises small parts that, under particular conditions, may be hazardous to children under the age of 14 years. If children are to carry out the model assembly, parents' supervision should be ensured.
14 languages User's guides will lead you through assembling process. In coming up with design for creative people, there is no borderline between imagination and reality.
Models are made up of many, small parts, which may be dangerous to children under 14 years old. The assembly of the model by children under 14 should be carried out under the supervision of parents. Models research and assembly advance technical creativity skills inspire science and technology history research.
Models of Metal Time are active leisure and superb gifts, interior embellishments, installation elements, models and showcase stands.
To make them gatherable and exchangeable, each of our models is assigned a unique serial number. The Metal Time Owners' Club is a group of people who are zealous about designing.
The loyalty program of Metal Time presents owners of our construction sets with pleasant surprises. Our models do not require glue or adhesive. Each part snaps off the sheet, then firmly snaps together. The set includes file, pliers, gloves, polishing cloth.
