Publisher Description:

The UGEARS UGM-11 Truck is 100% "Rubberpunk", a perfect blend of clockwork and steampunk worlds. Deliberately designed this model to have a raw, open look so even the casual observer could appreciate the marvels going on inside. This model runs, shifts, steers, and accelerates just like a real vehicle. The Truck is equipped with a four-cylinder rubber band engine. Fuel up' by turning the lever on top of the cab. Start the engine in idle mode and look at four pistons which move realistically under the folding hood. Open the cabin door and observe the fully functioning steering wheel and even a working gas pedal. Ready for a ride? Shift the transmission into forward' or reverse' and watch your truck head back to the fields for another load of hay. This kit may take some time to build,

but the rewards are absolutely worth it for those who love mechanics.

Category Description for Ugears Wooden Mechanical Model Kits:

Fully-functional mechanical models from nothing but laser-cut plywood? It sounds sketchy, and perhaps even fragile, but there's nothing amateur about these high-quality kits. Each box contains several sturdy wooden sheets of laser-cut pieces, with each piece numbered according to its chronological use in the instruction booklet. The booklet itself is the veritable pice de resistance of the kits, utilizing full-color 3D illustrations, "magnified" steps for small pieces, a straightforward labeling system, and helpful symbols for tricky steps. Once completed, the scale model operates just like the real thing, mimicking behavior as closely as 1/8th-inch plywood (and a few extra bits) can. Safes have combination locks, engines push pistons, and vehicles feature functioning transmission and rubber-band powered motors. All components are natural and sustainably-sourced. Oh, and did we mention the holy grail of model construction? No glue required.

The kits provide a range of complexity (between 1-12 hours), with 14 being the youngest recommended age for completing all models solo. With limited adult supervision or model-making experience, most kits can be completed by those as young as 11 or 12 and are durable enough for extended use. All models are beautifully designed and just about the right size for pretend play, and they can even be painted using watercolors or other thin paints! And of course, at the forefront of each and every lovingly crafted kit is a dedication to mechanics: you're not just putting it together; you're learning how it functions.

Quite challenging
I put together the umg11 truck. Took a while but finally figured it out. Really not for beginners. I had to order a new part because i broke same part. I would recommend that UGears provides duplicates of most requested spare parts.
Nevertheless, once figured out its really cool. Giving to my new grandson, stenciled with his name.
