The principle of the jet engine is not new; however, the technical advances necessary to make the idea work did not come to fruition until the 20th century.

A rudimentary demonstration of jet power dates back to the aeolipile, a device described by Hero of Alexandria in 1st-century Roman Egypt.
This device directed steam power through two nozzles to cause a sphere to spin rapidly on its axis. It was seen as a curiosity.

Meanwhile, practical applications of the turbine can be seen in the water wheel and the windmill.


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 primary 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 massive leap in evolution.

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 humanity.


The engineers of Metal Time created the Air Force model so even the people who are 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, more than a hundred of them are 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 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 case's golden color and mechanism give 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 keen on the sky to reward the aviator for the impeccable work and please your child with a unique toy.

Assembling 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 and 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.

All parts are separated and connected with light finger pressure, eliminating possible cuts or pricks during the assembly process.

The Metal Time kits comprise 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 the assembling process. In coming up with a design for creative people, there is no borderline between imagination and reality.

The model research and assembly advance the technical creativity skills inspire science and technology history research.

Models "Metal Time" are creators of 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 an upcoming group of people who are zealous about designing.

The loyalty program, "Metal Time," frequently presents the owners of our construction sets with pleasant surprises.
