Vitascope Mechanical Model
Build a fully working projection machine with dynamo power.
They'll love it because:
If you love an old movie on a rainy afternoon, this is the model for you. A Vitascope that will play a reel of actual film!
Start by slotting the laser cut pieces of wood together - supplied with everything you need and really good instructions that will take you step by step. The model has a hand crank which will roll a real piece of film through the projector, creating a comedy sketch that will run and run. A dark room is required to show the film, and if you have other films from way back when, they can also be shown. A great building project and a view of the past which is an insight into a world that we may have forgotten.
The building project will take between 4-8 hours to complete and is clearly one for someone who has done some building previously. Recommended at 14 , this might be a great present for an older child. Completely fascinating to watch.
