MUCH has been learnt, in many branches of science and engineering, from the use of small‐scale models. The earliest successful experiments in humanly contrived flight with heavier‐than‐air craft were made with small‐scale prototypes of the man‐carrying machine of a later day; experiments with man‐carrying craft, kite, glider and power‐driven, followed.
