Locomotive No. 1 was the first to travel the 9 miles between Stockton and Darlinton in Great Britain in 1825. The mechanical 3D kit from Eco Wood Art reproduces this locomotive in an impressive way. The model, which consists of 325 parts, has a rubber wind-up motor that allows the locomotive and trailer to move around on its own. The power transmission from the engine to the wheels can be seen impressively. The scope of delivery also includes a short piece of rails so that the model can be presented appropriately.
Age recommendation: from 14 years
Number of parts: 325
Model size: 40,0 x 10, x 17,8 cm
Simple assembly without any glue (possibly pliers and cutter / penknife recommended)
Contents: Environmentally friendly birch plywood, rubber bands, wax, wooden pens, clips, toothpicks, sandpaper and picture-by-picture assembly instructions.
Material: wood, rubber, wax
The model can also be painted with wood paints (not included). It is important, however, that the joints are not stuck together with dried paint.
The assembly requires a bit of handy skill, as the sometimes filigree components have to be joined together with controlled force from time to time. If the procedure is too careless or rough, individual parts can be irreparably damaged. Here, as with other model building parts, the following applies: Take a close look at the assembly instructions, less force, more patience and a precise approach.
Notes on the manufacturer:
EWA - Eco Wood Art designs unusual and creative construction kits with loving attention to detail and produces them itself. The environmentally friendly mechanical models, decorative puzzles and toys made from renewable birch wood are made of plywood panels. The respective panels are created using the laser cut process and some are decorated. The individual parts can be easily separated from the plywood panels and put together without the use of adhesives. The mechanical functions are realized with rubber bands (e.g. winding motors) or with gear wheels and bring them to life with movements. If you want, you can even paint the objects with wood paint and make them even more individual.
Not suitable for children under 3 years as small parts can be swallowed.
