The wooden 3D models of Ugears are unique in model building. Once you open the package, the challenge of assembling and fun starts with a scent of birch wood. But the real amazing part is to see the model in action.
Each model is a piece of art itself, with a special function based on principles of mechanics. The models are made of birch wood and technically amazing thought through so no glue is needed! In addition, the manual for each model is so comprehensive that even an inexperienced hobbyist can assemble the model: the different parts are numbered; images refer to each element; the steps are clear and by crucial steps it shows where to pay extra attention. Each model uses toothpicks serving as axles for the wheels and each model has its own unique piece of accessory for measurements. And to smoothen the various gears, it is recommended to use wax.
The products of Ugears are a true gift to receive or to give, moreover, beautifully packed in a luxury gift box with window and each product turns into a dazzling masterpiece as home decoration.
The 460 Locomotive with Tender
The 460 Locomotive with Tender of Ugears is a beautiful wooden scale model where all the technical and artistic innovations of all models are combined and even takes the builder one step further.
The locomotive is symbolic of the 19th century technology and stands for adventure and discovery.
Originally, the locomotive was powered by steam, but this model of Ugears is powered by rubber bands and gears, but the mechanism works and greatly resembles that of a real steam locomotive.
Up close you’ll see the operating pistons and valves move asynchronously, transferring power to the wheels through a system of moving rods, linkages and cranks. Once ready, the locomotive can drive 4 meters and has three different positions: forward, reverse and neutral.
Also this design of Ugears is hugely elaborated in detail with eye for reality and romance. As the cab of the driver with retractable ladder, the art-deco boiler trim and the tender with coal doors that open. The locomotive with tender is the largest and most complex model to date, but thanks to the patented multiplex design with strict quality control every hobbyist can put this model together. In addition, as with all models of Ugears, a comprehensive, full-colour, step-by-step manual is included.
The Locomotive with Tender of Ugears guarantees hours of fun: truly great to assemble, fascinating to run repeatedly and endlessly to look at!
