If you have ever wanted to build a model locomotive well now is the time. A perfect project for the kids to do with a parent. This locomotive model measures 370mm by 170mm when complete. It is driven by a spring which is wound up to store energy. Once released, the gears rotate and the chimney rotates. Due to the see-thru nature of the design you are able to see all the gears at work. Fascinating stuff! This little beauty will not chase the dog around your loungeroom so don't worry! The manufacturer assures me that it can be completed within 6 hours. Mmm. Think I would allow a little longer, maybe spread the project over a few days to add to the excitement. I should warn you that model building can become a bit of an addiction!
