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.
You will not find these unique puzzles anywhere else outside of Japan!
Models come with illustrated assembly instructions with English translations.
This is the silver set of The Wright Flyer 1903
This machine built by the Wright brothers, which brought in the aerial age with its 12-second, heavier-than-air flight in 1903, is likely to always remain one of the most famous aircraft ever and a great place to start any Areobase collection.
