UGears Roadster wooden mechanical model

UGears three-dimensional mechanical wooden models are becoming more and more popular around the world as a way to spend free time and dabble in both engineering and model-making. The reason behind his popularity is the fact that the 3D plywood mechanical models in our range are able to transcend what most of the general public thinks of when talking about the age-old hobby of model making.


That’s because our 3D wooden models are like no others that you’ll find on the market. Our models are entirely fashioned from responsibly sourced plywood and need no glue to assemble. They also require no batteries despite being capable of independent motion and are about as eye-catchingly impressive as you could imagine in terms of aesthetics and engineering.


What’s more, the enjoyment on offer is multi-layered. Let us explain why.


 Hurdy Gurdy


The first stage of fun to be had relates to the assembly phase which puts all of the laser-cut pieces in your hands and challenges you to put them together. Our models are aimed at all levels of skill, so whether you’re completely new to the hobby or a seasoned model-making pro, there are models to stimulate the mind and enrich the soul.



 U-9 Grand Prix Car

We can’t emphasise enough just how rewarding it is to put one of our 3D mechanical models together and see it take off under its own power. Seeing all the intricate inner workings whirring round in poetic engineering motion and knowing that you put it together is something that instils a strong sense of pride and achievement in anyone who does so.




Unlike other, traditional and frankly flimsy types of plastic model that most people associate with the hobby, our plywood mechanical models are easily sturdy enough to be played with. And when you see models like the U9 Grand Prix Car, the Hurdy Gurdy and the Aviator it’s not hard to see why so many people enjoy playing with them!

Another great thing about UGears 3D mechanical models is that they don’t necessarily have to be in motion to look incredible. Even in a stationary state, the exquisitely engineered lines, clockwork workings and stunning aesthetics of our models mean that they often end up taking pride of place on the mantlepieces and living room shelves of those who assemble them. With models this beautiful, who wouldn’t want to show theirs off?
