Have Fun with Your Vintage Puzzle

 

The feeling you get at the end of solving a puzzle is indescribable, and that is exactly the sensation you will experience once you complete creating your own version of the UGEARS 460 steam locomotive, described as being both exceptional and realistic.

 

  • Structured as per XIX century engineering with wheels, pistons, spinning gears, and other components designed to resemble its real life replica back then at the time when technical progress was at its peak.
  • Attention has been paid to each and every detail, as is evident from the fancy styling and this model having the most parts in the UGEARS range.
  • The engine is operated using a lever near the driver’s window, and can be steered up to a distance of 5 meters using the gigantic gearwheel array.
  • If you are interested in the mechanism of the good ol’ steam engine, you can take a peek at the asynchronously operating piston and valve inside the model that clearly shows how steam is channeled into the steam chamber.
  • The cabin is styled in an authentic fashion that includes an instrument panel and a retractable ladder beneath the door – you can use the roof hatch and tiny doors to look at inside.
  • For your convenience, each piece is pre-cut using plywood boards so it is super-easy to snap or snip them out. No glue is needed, so you can say goodbye to sticky fingers!

The package includes an instruction manual so you won’t have any trouble in understanding how to build the locomotive. It is not tough to build it – all you need to do is be a little patient with the model kit and soon you will be able to assemble it perfectly. Won’t this make a lovely gift for your friend’s upcoming birthday? Go right ahead and place your order!

beautiful but it doesn't work!

The train was fun to put together and looks great. Put together by my father, an expert mechanic and model builder. One problem: it doesn't actually go!

MODEL MAKING STEPS UP A GEAR

I buy a lot online and this company comes top. Some have bad packaging - this was excellent. Some you give special delivery instructions and they are ignored - this arrived on the exact day requested. These things for a well run company you might expect but having mentioned it was a 30th birthday present for my son a birthday card was included! Personal touch SUBERB.
