Every year that comes around, it makes it more and more difficult to get Dad or Pops something that will make him feel loved and special. Thanks to birthdays and Christmas, plus the advent of the internet, most Dads tend to already have everything they need.

However, we think that’s because most Dads don’t know about our model building kits! So, if you’re looking for some Father’s Day gift inspiration, continue reading to find out more about these incredible 3D puzzles for adults that can even move under their own power!

The Nicest of Father’s Day Surprises

Let’s be honest, most of the time, Dads aren’t really the first ones everything thinks about when it comes to gifting. That’s why many gifts end up being a big cliché and more than a little dull. However, if you’d prefer to give him a wonderful surprise, why not consider one of the following amazing model building kits?

The Hurdy Gurdy from Ugears

Is your Dad musical? Does he get his guitar out at the drop of a hat? If so, he’ll simply love the Hurdy Gurdy from Ugears, which is one of the most intriguing puzzle kits for adults you’ll find on the market. Why? Because once constructed, it’s a fully-working musical instrument.

Fashioned entirely from wood, this beauty works well as a home ornament or as a singularly unique musical masterpiece that he’ll appreciate for years to come!

The Racer from Veter

Does Dad have petrol in his veins? Does he often get caught up in the excitement of Formula One motor racing? If so, we’ve got no doubt that he’ll get simply tons of enjoyment piecing together the Racer V3 from Veter.

Complete with suspension, a working steering wheel and an internal engine that lets it move under its own steam, it’s one of the best possible 3D puzzle kits for adults with a passion for automotive excellence. He can even paint it to match his favourite facing team!

The Ferris Wheel from Wooden City

Our last suggestion is the Ferris Wheel from Wooden City, which is a true feat of engineering. Representing the popular ride from fairs from yesteryear and today, it offers a truly stimulating modelling challenge that’s so worth it when it’s finished.

Driven by its internal wooden engine and featuring a complex internal mechanism, this is one for more advanced modellers. However, that doesn’t stop anyone from giving it a try, as each model comes with full colour, glossy instructions and lots of YouTube tutorial support!
