U-9 Grand Prix Car
Another fascinating UGEARS model is available for pre-order with estimated delivery in mid-December!
Entering into this racing season, UGEARS presents its latest creation and a new fascinating addition to its car fleet: U-9 Grand Prix Car. The thrill of speed, roar of engines, wheel to wheel battles and shiny frames flashing before the eyes of wildly excited audience of the early car races as well as the historical heritage of the first Grand Prix and its impact on the twentieth century automobile industry inspired UGEARS to create this new amazing model and share our passion with you.
Model U-9 recreates iconic design and the magnificent and imposing appearance of Grand Prix winner models from drive shaft to spare wheel.
Under the hood of this new model you will find a 16 valve V8 engine equipped with a powerful fan. Your new vehicle has a link rod and a transmission switching the modes between idle, reverse, and race ahead, baby!
The U-9 has a spring-suspended fork and rubberized wheels - genuine sport tyres - ensuring smooth but rapid acceleration and a long driving range.
The design of this beauty is based on the racing-sports cars that participated in the very first Grand Prix race that had taken place in Italy back in the early 20th century. Adopting the sleek flowing lines of the famous racing cars-champions, UGEARS engineers and designers gave this new model an exquisite and truly elegant “old-school” appearance highlighted with a drive belt on the outside of the car and other peculiar design elements.
The oblong shape coupled with the bold style of the radiator grille is meant to bring you the feeling of the dawning age of car racing.

New UGears Models Pre-Order 1
Other New Models available for pre-order
The true jewel of UGears new collection of wooden models is an exquisite Mechanical Treasure Box for jewelry and notes. The delicate through-carved work of its lid and sides invites you to gain a glimpse into the mystery that the moving gears conceal.
Although only the one who can solve the secrets of the puzzle-box will get to enjoy the treasure of beautiful mechanics in its action. One would imagine that in order to open the box, we’d need a key – and the key is right there, beautifully embedded in the carved lid. All you need to do to take it out is to slightly turn the key clockwise. Although, getting the key is only a part of the puzzle. To set the gears in motion, before taking the key out, you want to unblock the mechanism that lifts the lid by turning the key counter-clockwise.
When all the secrets are revealed and the box is opened, inside you will find a small compartment for jewelry, notes and other small items. You can be sure, your treasures and secrets are safe with the new UGears Treasure Box.
Mechanical Town - Robot Factory
Have you ever wanted to build yourself a robot? How about a couple of robots? Ugears and its new model, the Robot Factory of the Mechanical Town collection, gives you a great opportunity to do it.
The Robot Factory, officially known in the Town as the Mechanical Wonder Works, is very much what both of its names imply: it is a model of a factory that produces robots and undoubtedly, a wonder of wooden mechanics. The model features a steam-punk style workshop with a fully functional assembly line to help you build your robots: arrange the parts of the robot in proper places along the line, wind it up, push the button, and – voila! – your automatic assembly line produces a mechanical wooden robot, all new and ready to serve whatever ingenious game plan you have in mind.
The settings of the Robot Factory Model represent a production facility with its main mechanical block running on Geneva drive. The assembly line is designed to automatically implement a semi knock-down assembly of robots. After initial preparation, the wind-up mechanism of the line will complete the assembly. The Factory design allows you to observe moving axles and gears working on the final product. In the end, all you need to do is to throw in a couple of gears to fix the robot’s arms and legs in place, and your new mechanical assistant is ready to go explore Mars or – help you to put another one like itself together!
The Robots have articulated legs and arms joints, capable of body rotation and come with a control cabin.
The rest of the Factory includes a monorail running along the perimeter with a forklift to deliver spare parts and tools, a ramp for the vehicles, miniature figures of workers, and small freight crates. To make the spirit of a solid industrial facility complete, the Factory is equipped with a fascinating decorative Stirling steam engine.
Made of plywood to be assembled without glue or special tools, The Robot Factory Model opens a whole new level of interactivity: UGears traditionally provides an ever-exciting process of assembly expanding the gaming constituent now with the machines building machines!

The model assembles like a puzzle without glue and special tools by following an illustrated color manual. While children are collecting some blocks, the adults can suggest their help: the joining parts are cut off precisely for the slots and for the assembly, you only need to insert the component pins, pressing them with your fingers. But if the fingers are too small, they may need some help. :)

Tram Stop complete with a clock, a bench, a little stairs and a Ticket Kiosk. The stairs are removable and can be placed in any part of platform
A Tram Depot with a gate where the tram drives in and where it prepares for the next trip according to the route timetable. The depot is also equipped with a turntable for turning the tram on 180 degree for the next trip. There is a special “tongue” on the rails of the turntable which stops the tram in the closed position, and reclines after the turn of the turntable allowing the tram move on the return route.
