A Peek at a Bygone Era

Wouldn’t it be thrilling to actually travel back in time and witness some of the greatest inventions? For example, the steam engine is one of the most famous innovations in its era, so to see it from up close would be a different experience than just reading about it or seeing pictures. While we don’t have a time machine, we can certainly offer you a mini replacement via this Engine construction kit from UGEARS.

  • The pneumatic motor is a smaller version of a fully functional model of a steam engine, which is operated by blowing into a specific socket or using a normal air balloon. The heat propels the pneumatic engine and it starts!
  • An air pressure tachometer is integrated into the design for correct measurement of working speed.
  • No need to wrack your heads about storing spare parts – all you have to do is use the two built-in compartments that offer ample space for those components.
  • All parts are made of plywood that enhances longevity – you don’t have to worry about them getting corroded or rusted.
  • No drill, screwdriver or any other tool required while assembling. In fact, you don’t need glue as well.
  • The steam engine is designed in a vintage style, so you can easily use it as a decorative item in your living room or dining hall.

The mechanical kit comprises precision produced parts that are carefully checked and packaged before being delivered, so you can rely on us. If you are passionate about building trains and engines, then this miniature will be a great addition to your collection. The kit can be a great gift for someone who shares your zeal – just present it to them and they will appreciate your thoughtfulness big time.

Models assembly tips


  • If you hold the board with its front side directed to you, it is better to remove the parts by pulling them. In this case, if a burr is pulled together with a part, it will make a pit in the board, not in the part. The best solution is to incise the hangers with a knife;
  • If you have difficulties in inserting a toothpick in the assembled gearwheel, rub the toothpick with a candle;
  • You may also lubricate all the projecting axes of the gearwheels before installing them on the frame. In this case the friction during rotation will be minimal;
  • However, do not lubricate the parts of pendulum connection with a candle – two projecting sticks in the tractor or timer. In this case the pendulum will not swing but skid;
  • Try to remove big burrs on the gearwheels, if any. The motion of some models is very delicate, and they may hinder it;
  •  If any gearwheel creaks or squeaks, lubricate it with a regular candle, paraffin or wax. If the plywood edge is too resinous and some teeth tend to seize, which happens quite rarely, lubricate the gearwheel in the same manner;
