These are models kits that normally have moving parts and features. Either through manually apply the energy, or through rubberbands or windings. They not only make spectacular models to look at, but they are fascinating to watch engage with their many moving parts.

These are very popular as gifts. Perhaps people just like mechanical things that move, but with wood being the easiest to work with, they're easier for most folks to build with little or no model experience.

NOTE: There are some that do not have moving parts, and are considered more of a static model. They are still made of wood though and can still be fun to assemble and display.

Is it possible to paint the model ?

Yes, you can paint it. Ugears recommends using watercolor, gouache or mordant types of paint. You can use acrylic paints as well, however, the density may prevent gears from moving freely.

If you just want to add some color for a child's build, colorful Sharpie Pens (or a magic marker) will work.

How can I make the parts move easier ?

If the connecting of certain moving parts appears difficult, Ugears says to try using a household wax candle to lubricate the parts. (Guessing here - but rubbing the candle / wax onto the parts will give it a coating for better action. It's not neccessary to light the candle or use a flame).

 

Normally glue is not needed on these kits.

But just in case you want to strengthen
