Model making and locomotives - this combination looks back on a great tradition. Everything to do with railways has always been considered one of the most popular fields for model makers.
Historic and historical models play a major role in this. Such a model can also be found in the 3D puzzle steam locomotive by Ugears.
A steam locomotive steeped in history
The locomotive is a great steam locomotive made of wood that is based on the models from the 19th century. Thanks to the countless details and the impressive complete package, you can bring these times back to life.
The is completely true to life - including pistons, cylinders, valves, coupling rods, driving rods and many more details. A highlight is the retractable step ladder, which rounds off the detailed cabin. The boiler casing follows on seamlessly from this, offering doors and flaps - also functional, of course.
The steam locomotive is the largest model in the Ugears range. At the same time, it is also the most complex, which is obvious at first glance. But with the breathtaking richness of detail, you may discover new highlights even after days.
A mechanical masterpiece
The steam locomotive is equipped with an additional tender. It is driven by cogwheels and a rubber motor. Of course, it is also clear that the wooden model would first have to be assembled - and that is actually the most fun.
You can bring the Ugears locomotive to life with a few simple steps. However, the level of difficulty is comparatively high.
Good news: you don't need glue, just your head and hands.
The assembly time of the is around 10 to 12 hours. No wonder it takes a little longer, because the mechanical model kit of the steam locomotive with tender includes an impressive 443 components. You can find more key data below.
We hope you have fun building!
The most important summary
- Natural materials - all 3D kits are made from sustainably grown wood
- No adhesive required
- Mechanical functions - all models generate movements
- Easy assembly - all components are already laser-cut and ready to assemble
