Looking forward to new, more difficult ones!
I have built 13 3d wooden puzzles, about 8 from UGEARS. UGEARS kits use the most finished plywood of the 3 brands I have built. The instructions are the best and easiest to follow.. UGEARS uses rubber band power while another brand uses springs (rubber bands are the best in my opinion) These kits although functional are not toys but more for display. I now have a large display and 5 or 6 more kits to assemble.
If you are looking for a new challenge and Lego Technic has become too expensive for you, then UGEARS 3D wooden puzzles are for you.
Caution; when assembling the kits, take extra care when building the gears because sometimes they do not function properly by the time you reach final assembly (sanding & greasing, and taking the crowns off the gears) are key!
UGM 11 Truck
first on i obtained was the combine havester, was challenging (but done in 7 hrs
however i learned toilet was to sand all attached surfaces after you punch out
the parts or they prevent smooth operation. on the whole was great exercise.
The ugm 11 truck worked very well after learning and making sure all sub assembled parts moved as they should. this took 8 days as the tips of my
fingers getting sore pushing out the tiny parts.this model was very good .not
one i wood start on.but by all means a great man toy
My first build. Well designed and executed. A lot of fun to put together. A great gift for anyone. Follow the wax lubing and sanding directions, as it will affect how well it operates. Watch removing smaller pieces from frames as they can easily break. (I broke 2 smaller pieces and repaired with ca type glue).
