UGears V-Express Steam Train Paper craft
Originally a wooden set train model by UGears, it’s now scanned as paper craft and can be build by everyone.
Train Size: 22.0 x 4.7 x 4.7 in
Track size: 96.5 x 4.7 x 4.7 in
Number of parts: 538
Assembly Time: 10 hours
Recommended Age: 14+
Featuring mechanical parts, the V-Express Steam Train has the power and energy to travel up to 13 feet when it’s given one full winding.
Not only is the train able to move, but also the forward, back and idle settings are available with just the flip of a switch.
The idle setting, in particular, is quite riveting as it allows you to fully take in the breathtaking sights of the train you built with your own hands and its moving parts while the model is at a standstill.
The locomotive’s tender is an empty coal car that’s just waiting to be filled with your own small, precious cargo.
The car features no shortage of design details, as it’s outfitted with a locking hatch and sides that lift up. With its rubber-band motor, the V-Express Steam Train automatically moves backward and connects to the tender car when you move the setting to “back.”
