U Gears Model Train
Cut from Plywood by laser these kits are fantastic - just press out of the plywood sheet and clip together a moving model - typically using rubber bands for power.
The UGEARS Locomotive with Tender is the most extravagant model yet, it incorporates all the technical solutions from previous model designs and more! Astonishingly realistic, the Locomotive's internal gears, pistons and wheels are as close to the real thing as possible. It looks and functions in a way almost identical to that of a steam train. Once completed, it stands out as a truly original piece of mechanics that clearly requires diligent assembly work (although it's not our simplest model, it's not beyond the capabilities of a beginner). Capable of running a distance of up to 5 meters, the model's massive gearwheel array is propelled forward by the enormous 12 band rubber-band engine.
Great gift idea
