Clockwork Model Engine - No Glue or Tools Required
94533 Clockwork Model Engine, £19.99
You can have the patience of a saint; the skills of a surgeon and the dexterity of a concert pianist...but if the individual components of the model youre making do not fit together properly, its very frustrating.
Happily, this isnt a problem with the wooden engine featured here. All the individual pieces are cut with lasers for maximum precision. Thats why all our models can be assembled without tools or glue.
They simply fit together perfectly. And the detail on each is astonishing. The closer you look the more youll see: cogs and pistons, flywheels, gearing mechanisms theyre triumphs of mechanical ingenuity.
Be a part of the once great era of steam with just a breath of air. The Pneumatic Engine is a small but fully functional example of a steam engine, except it uses air pressure instead of steam to set it in motion. Use an ordinary inflated balloon and watch the pistons and gears chug along just like the locomotive engines of yesteryear. The model comes with a built-in air pressure gauge and two compartments for storage and spare parts.
Exquisitely detailed, fairly challenging, but immensely satisfying. Assembled model size is approximately 6x3x4".
