Hi all bought this with my Christmas money.



Its a really complex kit (far more complex than I thought)

I think the name "U-Gears" may have given away the game a bit on the complexity. ;)

However, good luck with that lot! :o

I have faith in you, young 'nuts! :smiley: ;)

That's impressive! Is it all press-fit or did you have to glue some of the parts?

For some reason, I'm thinking of the Rick & Morty quote "Well, the thing about the gear wars, is that it was never actually about the gears at all."

Beautiful!!  I'm curious, do they say what series of locomotive served as a pattern for this kit?
