Explore the world of high-speed maglev (magnetic levitation) trains by building your own Magic Bullet, a train that "floats" above the rails without touching them. Kit includes the wood needed for track and train, magnetic strips and rings, plastic rails, screws and washers, and decals to give your train a custom look. You supply the sandpaper, glue, and paint. The "train" starts out as a square block of wood that you file or sand, then paint and decal both the train and the track to your liking. Assembly of the track and train goes rather quickly, with final adjustments leaving you with a model that effortlessly glides along the track.
Build and design your own levitating train with track. Explore the magnetic theory behind the real-life maglev trains. Cool science fair project or center! Includes raw wood (train and track), adhesive magnetic strip, ring magnets, plastic angles, dowel rod, screws, decals, and step-by-step instruction guide. Just add your own wood glue, screwdriver, sand paper, and paint. Track measures 24.63" L
