Kids, it’s not time for us to set up the train around the Christmas tree. I know yinz love trains, but it’s August! Let’s make it to Halloween first and then we can talk about Christmas. In the mean time, check out this Time For Machine Dazzling Steamliner metal 3D Train Puzzle. Surely you can enjoy this wind-up model, and when you build it, we’ll place it on the mantle year-round.
3D puzzles take flat cutout pieces like a standard jigsaw puzzle, but instead of forming them into a plane, you instead create an object with width and height. This additional dimension makes completing a 3D puzzle significantly more difficult and is better suited for adults than young children.
All aboard the Time For Machine Dazzling Steamliner metal 3D train puzzle!
One of our friends absolutely loves trains. In fact, he keeps a display up year-round and constantly keeps changing it up. He has mountains, buildings, and scenery that has all been built by hand. This love of trains started as a child, and now has passed on to his grandchildren.
If you too love trains but don’t have the space to keep up a large display, then take a look at this Time For Machine Dazzling Steamliner metal 3D train puzzle. This stainless steel locomotive puzzle is said to be based on 20th century luxury trains. It evokes a steampunk aesthetic with all the incorporated clockwork-like gears.
The model train comes with a wind-up mechanism that actually moves your finished model back and forth on the 3′ of included track. The mechanism is based on the spring and wind-up lever action used traditionally in wind-up toys. As you wind, you compress the spring inside, and that energy transfers to the gears which in turn powers the train.
The DIY Time For Machine Dazzling Steamliner 3D train puzzle is a wonderful family activity. Pass along a love for trains to your children, and display a unique work of art that you crafted with your own hands. This display and conversation piece works as an elegant piece of home décor that can be displayed anywhere you have open space.
