Military Bridge Model Drawings
By Leonardo da Vinci and Bailey
Welcome to Military Bridges: The primary driving force for most new inventions is a need. This work just touches on two ideas: one idea put forth by da Vinci before 1500 and the other by Bailey some 400+ years later. The Bailey bridge model drawings are for the skilled model maker or for someone up to a challenge.
