UGears Date Navigator model

There are models and there are UGears models.


What do we mean by that? Well, when you think about model making, most think of the static plastic models that people have been constructing for years. And whilst they can be fun to put together, once they’re finished, all that you can do is display them on a shelf to gather dust.


UGears models can of course be used in the same way, but also in a host of other ways that offer hours and hours of enjoyment. Our models are created from responsibly sourced plywood, which not only means that they are super-eco friendly, but also that they’re sturdy enough to be played with after assembly without the fear of breaking them - unlike traditional plastic models.


The Date Navigator


A shining example of this is the Date Navigator, which is highly enjoyable to assemble and is fabulously good looking to boot. Created with a stunning Steampunk design, this 3D mechanical doesn’t have to sit unused on a shelf looking pretty, as it’s equipped with a complex inner mechanism that actually serves a purpose.


This amazing 3D plywood model is able to identify the particular day of the week relating to any given date between now and 2044. If you’re wanting to work out what day Christmas 2020 falls upon, simply spin the cogs and wheels to the appropriate position and you’ll get your’s a Friday!


The fact that a beautiful, three-dimensional, mechanical model is created from plywood alone is testament to the imagination and skill of the UGears designers and an firm indication of why choosing a UGears model represents a great choice for yourself or as a gift for someone else.


No Batteries, No Glue, Just Fun

Every single 3D mechanical model from the UGears range is fashioned from a single sheet of plywood using a highly precise laser cutter. Each piece is so precisely cut that they are able to simply slot together without glue, nails or screws. Not only that, but our models move under their own power too without any need for batteries, meaning that they about as friendly to the environment as they could possibly be.
