UGEARS CREATES EYE-CATCHING AND IMAGINATIVE SELF-PROPELLED WOODEN MECHANICAL MODEL KITS THAT CAN BE ASSEMBLED WITHOUT GLUE
The thrill of speed, roar of engines, wheel to wheel battles and shiny frames flashing before the eyes of wildly excited audience of the early car races - it's all there, in UGEARS 'fascinating U-9 Grand Prix Car based on iconic designs of the Golden Age of the automobile industry at the beginning of the XX century. The mechanisms hidden inside the devices we use in our lives are made so tiny these days that people became deprived of a possibility to behold of the magic of moving gears. The interest in real mechanics will always be there urging us to seek its propulsion source and take a look inside. People enjoy assembling models that come to life in their hands showing the fascinating workings of gears in a beautiful articulated structure.
Model U-9 recreates the magnificent and imposing appearance of Grand Prix winner models from drive shaft to spare wheel. Under the hood of this new model you will find a V8 engine equipped with a powerful fan and 16 fully functioning valves. To wind it up just use the hand crank in its front. Your new vehicle has a link rod and a transmission switching the modes between idle, reverse, and race ahead, baby! The U-9 has a spring-suspended fork and rubberized wheels ensuring smooth but rapid acceleration and a long driving range.
The design of this beauty is based on the racing-sports cars that participated in the very first Grand Prix race that had taken place in Italy back in the early 20 century.
Adopting the sleek flowing lines of the old Formula One prototypes, UGEARS engineers and designers gave this new model an exquisite and truly elegant “old-school” appearance highlighted with a drive belt on the outside of the car and other peculiar design elements. A model kit has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the details is very high – the parts of the models are outlined with a CNC laser cutter on a plywood board.
The first thing you notice when opening the box is a pleasant smell of wood. It is eco-friendly and healthy. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. The car is using Ugears signature “know how” that allows implementing assembly without glue or any additional tools. Just follow the detailed step-by-step illustrated manual with instructions in 10 languages to complete your model.
NATURAL. Made from wood materials. UGEARS models are produced in Europe from high quality wooden materials. They are sturdy and long-lasting.
NO GLUE CONNECTION. Assembling without glue and chemicals. UGEARS models don’t need glue or special tools to connect parts. which makes watching it working and moving even more exciting. You can assemble them at home on the table. All you need is your own hands, patience, and assembly instructions.
SELF-ASSEMBLY. Parts are already cut and ready to assemble. Models are equipped with everything needed for assembly. The quality of the parts is very high – a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board. Firstly, you put the smaller parts together to form the large blocks: which will altogether complete the whole model.
MECHANICAL. UGEARS models produce motion, are self-propelled. Instead of a simple static display, each model is capable of a unique and fascinating range of self-powered movements, all without batteries, and some of them can go up to 5 meters!
UNIQUE DESIGN. Each UGEARS model is not just a construction kit, but a piece of art and a great idea of perfect mechanism embedded in each design. Putting them together, you bring the idea to life. The beautiful structure of gears is not only creating motion but also looks beautiful as home decoration.
EDUCATIONAL. Ugears models are perfect for family projects through hands-on STEM learning. UGEARS puzzling unites parents and kids, fathers and sons. t’s unforgettable time which you share with your beloved ones making real things together.
