Steam Locomotive

As we approach the end of another decade, smartphones, tablets and games consoles are all the rage and for many, if it’s not happening’s not happening at all! However, we’re here to remind everyone that not everything good in the world has to be enjoyed through a screen. Our incredible range of 3D mechanical plywood models are stimulating, inspiring, fun to assemble and there isn’t a finger swipe or download in sight!


If you haven’t seen one of our three-dimensional mechanical models before, then you’re in for a treat, as the designs we have created are as jaw-dropping to look at as they are intriguing and challenging to put together. With fully functioning motors, clockwork mechanisms and self-propelled rubber-band driven vehicles, our models can be played with, as well as displayed for admiration and posterity.


Responsibly Sourced, Intelligently Designed

 Precision Cut Plywood Models

Every single model in the UGears range is laser cut from a single sheet of plywood, with each piece being so precisely fashioned that they all fit together without the need for any kind of adhesives. That includes all moving parts, engines and clockwork mechanisms inside each one, with only a rubber band required to achieve self-propulsion. That’s right, no electrical power source or batteries are needed for a UGears 3D mechanical model to move around, as the power of a few turns is all that's needed.


Our models are also extremely environmentally friendly, especially as the wood we use is responsibly sourced from sustainable forests. Add that to the fact that there’s no plastic whatsoever in our models and you see the dedication that has gone into making our models as close to zero as possible in terms of their impact on the planet. Compared to traditional plastic models, ours are more durable, more enjoyable and much, much better for the environment.


Old-School Entertainment

Heavy Boy Truck

When you see examples of our models like the Steam Locomotive, the Chronograph and the Heavy Boy Truck, you get a glimpse into what we mean when we talk about analogue fun. The relaxation and satisfaction you get from putting one of our models together is one that you can’t replicate by playing a computer game and its a reason why more and more people are enjoying our models.
