Action models ?

I'm not quite sure how to put this but I'll give it a try.
I've been fascinated by models since I was about four, ($%^& years ago)
when my father showed me how to make tiny flying models out of scrap balsa and postcards.
Please don't misunderstand me, I adore static models and the sheer artistry of the people on this forum takes my breath away day after day.
What I was thinking of was would there be a place on this forum for a section on, for want of putting my feeble brain into gear, a section for Dynamic models, such as paper aircraft that fly.
(Please take a moment to relax, the interlude, where I take a sip of lager, will be short, and normal conversation will resume shortly)
I can't think of a suitable word for the section but "Dynamic is the best I could come up with."
Any thoughts ?
Liz

Dear Sprogs:
Another term would be 2.5D models, example below. Also I have seen cars that run on rubber band drive.
Enjoy,
Miles

Automatons do things when you turn the crank, pull the tab, move the lever.
There are some paper automatons on the Canon Creative Park site, at Paper Pino, and scattered around the internet, both as fre downloads and as pay models.
You might also take a look at paper pop-ups.
There were a couple of Japanese designers who offered paper airplane models that can glide.

I think a link to flying airplane models might help here, too. https://www.4dpaperairplane.com/
You have to love that he has a flying Grumman X-29. https://www.4dpaperairplane.com/by-manufacturer.html
