wooden tractor model

Typically speaking, if you’re someone looking to get started on a modelling hobby, the beginner models you’ll encounter on the market will be quite simplistic and not as rewarding to construct as they might be. However, when you try a fabulous 3D mechanical wooden model to start your hobby, you’ll get to construct some pretty impressive designs and get the rewarding feeling that comes with completing them.


Let’s a have look at just a few of the beginner models we have in store for you right now.


The Tractor


The first wooden model on our list is the Tractor which is able to move under the power of its own rubber band engine and the amazing thing - if you’re new to UGears models - is that it’s completely made from high-grade plywood. No plastics, metals or batteries are included with this or any of our 3D mechanical wooden models and the finished product is absolutely something you’ll want to show to your friends and family.


The Geneva Drive


Perhaps even more impressive than the Tractor is the Geneva Drive that replicates a pneumatic engine, whilst again being almost entirely fashioned from wood. Using a blown-up balloon or your own breath, you can cause the intricate cogs and wheels to move around in perfect harmony. This one is a particularly easy to model to put together, however, it’s no less impressive to look at afterwards.


The Theater


Last on our list, but by no means least is a 3D wooden mechanical model with a thespian twist - the Theater. This beautifully complex, but surprisingly simple-to-construct wooden model will keep you entertained for hours and whilst you’re doing so, you’ll know that no damage was caused to the environment to create it - as every piece is made from responsibly sourced plywood.


No Adhesives Required


The fact that every 3D mechanical wooden model is able to move unaided and is entirely made from wood is impressive enough, however, when you realise that there’s no glue, nails, screws or tacks required to piece these beautiful creations together, it soon becomes apparent just how much engineering skill has gone into designing them. Every UGears model is precisely laser-cut from plywood meaning that they just slot together.
