Idle Hands are the Devil's Playthings

The other day I was in the mood to do a puzzle.  Don't ask me why, sometimes these things over take me.
.
Now we've done the this before - we did a globe puzzle and some others.  I usually get bored because they are too easy or frustrated because they are too hard.  Let's face it, I am not a puzzle guy (then why the puzzle - I said, I was on a toot).
.
In our wanderings we happened upon the Met Store at Rockefeller Center.  And we saw 2 Leonardo Divinchi models that were puzzle-ish.  Eddie and I both made one.  His the model of the ornithopter (the helicopter) and mine of the bird man (the glider).
.

The fact that these little balsa wood sadistic puzzle (good for 12 and up ha!) are not in 1,000 little balsa wood chips is a testament to Ed's patience and talking me down off a ledge.  I offer them up not as bragging, but as proof since I shan't be doing it again!
.
My little flying man - somehow both harder, and less pretty than Ed's.  And yes, you turn the crank and he flaps
.
Ed's ornithopter.  It really races when you turn his crank!
