Steam Locomotive 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!

First class models with a five star service.

I have never made a model and a basic DIY man. The first two model I completed with smaller ones and progressed to the horse,car, boat and I am justing finishing of the train. At first I referred to videos if not to sure how to put a particular bit together. If you are new to the models, make sure you carry out the sanding,waxing and positioning of the moving parts. When doing the Yachts rigging a tip my wife gave me is to dip the end of the thread in clear vanish, let it dry and it then passes through the holes easier. I broke a small part + the spare,Helena at U Gear arranged for a replacement to be sent to me, free of charge. The models look stunning and I havent been bored this winter.

Tooth picks

I find that the tooth picks are not man enough for the smooth operation of the gearing. And I have found that they break after a while and the model needs taking apart in order to replace the tooth picks.
