CNC: Windtunnel Mockup

this is a study for a piece I am working on. In the Wright Brothers Windtunnel I would like to replicate the moment after initiating a strike and when a sword actually strikes a thing. In this way it is infinetly locked in a moment of action. I am using a Shamshir sword which is a highly loaded cultural symbol so I think that in order to show it the entire aparatus of the piece must be recreated- including the windtunnel itself. As a representation it would simply fall flat.

I took this opportunity to prototype the modules I will be using for my final project. I ran through a number of iterations and now need to refine the mechanism that allows them to slide past each other.
