Excellent project to keep hands and mind busy! It's amazing what laser cut material and mechanical designs can be done for wood models like the U9 Grand Prix car and others. The quality of the wood is very good, easy punch out parts and assembly. The assembly manual is clear step by step instructions. The engine assembly is rubber powered with pistons, intake and exhaust valves that actually move! I will definitely look into starting another UGears project!
Although the U-9 has 100 fewer parts than the VM-01 it is just a intricate and doesn't need you to tie tiny rubber bands. Top quality material, masterful design, a challenge to build - what more can I say except I'll be buying more kits from Ugears.
Very detailed model. Had three pieces break but was able glue them back together. After completion the car would not run. I did follow the instructions closely but I must have done something wrong. I am now working on your tanker model. I will be buying more of your models. Thank you
