Nice. Hope it’s more successful than the timer I tried to build. Never worked and went in the bin....
Cheers

Those U Gear kits are brilliant, got the tramcar worked great...

Until the cat thought it was a toy and lobed it off the shelf it was on!

Have a few spare cocktail sticks to hand, as you might need them if you break the ones that come in the kit.

Thankyou for the interest, made a start on the "engine" last night, the pistons were the hardest part, needed quite a bit of pushing and shoving to get them on their con-rods :tools-hammer:

Moved to traditional car kits.
Making a nice start. I recall that a lot of parts on the timer needed a good thump to get them to seat fully.

A device for measuring time. E.g. Egg timer.

Small update, the power train, ie elastic bands :lol: these were surprisingly difficult to get right, broke one of the bands fixing place, luckily spares are included.

Hi Les :) coming along nicely, It seems to be getting more complicated the further you go with the kit It makes a very interesting build diary.
Keep up the good work with this fascinating kit.
