Fire Truck - build your own moving model by UGears
The Fire Truck is a self-propelled wooden model from the new UGEARS Trucks collection. Intelligent design mixed with smart engineering inside. The Fire Truck functions like a real Rescue&Fire Truck with turning foot and extension ladder which transforms into real crane with a hook!
The UGEARS Fire Truck is equipped with the retractable 3-Section Fire Ladder on a rotating platform (length when fully extended – 70cm).
The Fire Ladder has several controls:
Press the lever and lift up the ladder
Turn the platform to the right or to the left
Fix the selected position with a special ratchet
All three sections of the ladder are extending out
Extend the ladder and you’ll get a real crane with a hook at its end
There is even a little ladder to help Firemen to climb on the truck - as in a real Fire Truck it is mounted on the back
Based on UGM-11 Truck, the Fire Truck is equipped with a four-cylinder rubber band engine and moves on its own forward in the “drive” mode and back on “reverse” transmission mode. Start the engine in 'idle mode' and look at four pistons which move under the folding hood.
Made from sustainable wooden materials the kit has all you need for assembly: a set of high-quality plywood boards with precisely cutout parts, detailed step by step instructions and several spare parts inside.
Laser precision cut - each part is easily pushed out from the plywood sheets. No glue and special tools are needed for putting the model together. Fits together like a puzzle thanks to UGEARS’ patented plywood joints.
Assemble without glue like all UGEARS models with a step-by-step, truly easy to follow, colour instruction manual.
As my wife said, 'That kept you quiet for days!'. Another excellent model that actually works! Again. like the other of your models I have, is now on show! Now planning to work out which one to purchase next.
