Looking for a mechanism blueprints to base kinetic models on

I’m not sure how to explain it, but I’m looking for a source of plans/blueprints that I can use as a base for kinetic models.

For example, a box with a handle that you turn to operate some kams that makes a birds wings flap, or an animal run.

I’ve got a laser cutter and a 3d printer, as well as the traditional wood and metalwork tools so making the mechanism isn’t a problem, I’m mostly trying to skip that part of the design process and jump straight to them model making.

I don’t think this is exactly what you are looking for, but… Are you familiar with this old resource, partially updated for the web, to show many common, movements, mechanisms, linkages, etc?

It’s a good resource, but I’m more looking for a boil in the bag solution so I can make the models rather than trying to get the mechanisms right.
