Full Scale da Vinci Models Move In
A few weeks ago, the Discovery Channel debuted a new show named Doing Da Vinci (we showed the first episode here at the museum). The show builds full sized working models using designs drawn by da Vinci. Once they finished filming, Discovery Channel offered the models to the Museum and The Da Vinci Experience.
This week, the catapult, machine gun, and car arrived at the museum. They are currently being prepared for display. Below is a video and some pictures of the models as they wait to move in. They are amazing to see!
We will receive more models in the coming weeks, such as the tank which most likely will be on display at the San Diego Air & Space Museum – Gillespie Field Annex because it is just to big to bring here.
