This was a complex build, but an enjoyable challenge. The hardest part is getting the toothpicks into the pieces without breaking. There are several extras, and you can use remaining partial toothpicks when you only need a short piece, but you still have to be careful. The mechanism is very cheery when it’s running, but you may have to make adjustments after assembly. If you have small tools like jewelry pliers it can help.
Got this for my boyfriend (22M), arrived in no time at all and he had a blast putting it together. It took him around 2.5 hours, but he’s very handy! All in all, more than pleased with Ugears and will look at ordering more model sets in the future.
I actually ordered 2 of the same (tram) as gifts for my two brothers. They really liked it and are building it with their sons. Something meaningful that fathers & sons get to spend time working on together.
I bought it as a gift for my husband, because he likes all sorts of such designers, he is just delighted with my gift, he sits and collects in his spare time.
