Usually at this time of year, everyone is looking forward to a much needed break over Easter, but the last year or so has not been an ordinary time. What the chaos of 2020 has meant is that we’ve all spent a lot more time than we’d like cooped up inside, but the good news is that our amazing wooden mechanical models are just what you need to beat the boredom.

What we’re going to look at in this blog is just one example of what we mean. The truly stunning LK701 Locomotive 3D mechanical model not only looks great, but springs into life, just like the real thing. The model-making world is being revolutionised by these fantastic creations that add an extra dimension to the hobby.

 An Incredible, Realistic Design

 Featuring the truly iconic Walschaerts Valve Gear mechanism that’s so synonymous with 19th century rail travel, this captivating wooden mechanical model has an open design so that you see all of the gears and cogs moving in harmony. There’s no doubt that locomotives from the Victorian era have a style all of their own and after completing it, you’ll have a wonderful representation of your own to keep.


Whilst it might seem that an intricate 3D mechanical wooden model like this would take a degree in engineering to complete, the truth couldn’t be more different. Not only are our models simple enough for modelling novices to piece together, but they come with colour instructions and we even create YouTube videos to help.


Not Just a Static Model to Admire

The beauty of our wooden models is unmistakable, but that’s far from all they offer. That’s because these mechanical creations move thanks to the ingenious wooden engine that sits inside. Powered by a humble elastic band, it’s able to move several metres on a single wind - so you may struggle to stop playing with it every spare moment you have!


These amazing models are sturdy too - unlike traditional plastic types - meaning that they’re designed to be played with. So, whilst you may get one for a present, it will be with you long after the occasion has been and gone - impressing every person who sees it.

What’s more, you’ll be able to say - “I made that!”.
