Areobase is a collection of detailed, scale models designed by a single Japanese craftsman with a lifelong love of building models.
They are all designed to look as authentic and beautiful as possible. While their detail may make them look complex, Aerobase models are designed so that anyone who likes building models can enjoy assembling them as this video shows.
While they look somewhat like Nano Puzzles at first glance, Aerobase models are higher quality and have more details to include propellers that turn.
Models come with illustrated assembly instructions with English translations.
This is the gold set of the Santos Dumont 14-b
The 14-bis (Quatorze-bis), also known as Oiseau de proie (“bird of prey” in French) was a pioneer era canard biplane designed and built by Brazilian engineer Alberto Santos-Dumont. On 23 October 1906, in Paris, France, it performed the first officially witnessed unaided takeoff and flight by a heavier-than-air aircraft. (source: Wikipedia)
