Before there were steam-powered engines and paved roads, there were horses. Strong and majestic, horses have been used as a means of transportation for centuries. UGears sought to tell the story of the reliability of these animals when they created the Horse-Mechanoid model kit. Maybe you just love horses and the way their tails sway as they graze the pastures. Perhaps you've long been a rider and want to create something uniquely related to your passion. It could be that you simply love the history of horses as a mode of transport. Whatever reason it is that you enjoy these tall, powerful, and nurturing creatures, you can't skip this entrancing, steampunk-inspired model kit.
The UGears Horse-Mechanoid pays tribute to a majestic animal by creating a fully functional model. Featuring extra support and anatomical correctness to ensure stability on the move, this model's innovative mechanisms are all created with sustainable, high-grade wood. Laser-cut precision ensures joints and movements that are very close to that of a real horse, and the gears, cranks, and rubber bands of the model work with gravity to give it its power. In fact, this model is so functional that its head even sways when it moves. In the chest, you'll find an oscillating pendulum that works as the horse's bionic heart. This heart transmits the rubber band's energy to create the movement you'll love in this model. Of course, UGears' traditional design means you get to see everything working inside the horse while it's on the move.
Just like many of the company's models, the UGears Horse-Mechanoid is a true masterpiece and built in the steampunk style the company's customers have come to know and love. A tribute to Japanese and Chinese inventors, Ancient Greeks, Leonardo da Vinci, and other great minds of the past who tried to create walking machines, this gorgeous model horse stands tall, moves gracefully, and offers all the aesthetically pleasing elements you'd hope to find in a model. It even includes soft, flexible rubber bands for the mane and tail, which allows them to sway when the horse moves forward or shakes its head.
Created with sustainable, high-quality wood, the UGears Horse-Mechanoid Bionic model kit features everything you need to put it together. Laser-cut plywood creates easy-to-assemble, interlocking pieces that work like a puzzle, which means that you need no glue or special tools to hold this model together. The color-coded templates and step-by-step instructions, which are available in 11 different languages, such as English, Polish, and Japanese, simply add to the ease of creation. This model features 410 parts and takes about 9 hours to complete, making it one of the harder kits available through UGears and a great choice for experienced model builders or those who want to voyage into longer projects. It was created with horse lovers ages 14 and older in mind.
