The Ugears Locomotive and Tender is a step above the rest. Astonishingly realistic and intricately detailed, this may not be Ugears' simplest model, but it's not beyond the capabilities of a beginner model maker. What a fantastic challenge for kids and adults to embark on as a team!

Once you assemble the pre-cut plywood pieces (no glue required), your Locomotive will function in a way that is almost identical to that of a steam train, propelled by an enormous 12 band rubber band engine rather than super-heated steam. The engine is clearly visible from inside the model!

Capable of running a distance of up to 5 metres, the speed at which your train travels depends on how much you wind up the engine. Watch the internal gears and pistons up close as they transfer power to the locomotive's drive wheels through a moving system of rods, linkages and cranks!

It truly is an original piece of mechanical art that requires diligent assembly work over a period of 10-12 hours. There are even little doors and a roof hatch to let you peer inside the cabin, complete with instrument panel, retractable ladder and an open-up tinder with coal doors!

Coming complete with a detailed, step-by-step full-colour instruction manual, each of the pre-cut, eco-friendly pieces are easy to snip out and can be completed in a single sitting for experiences hobbyists. It's a highly impressive piece of model work that is a marvel to look at and discuss!
