These days, families are much less likely to spend time together than at any other point in history. The reason? Smartphones and tablets - the technological marvels that are robbing us of our ability to communicate in person. The good news is that there is an antidote to this particular epidemic and it comes in the form of 3D mechanical models by Time For Machine.

Now, you may be thinking that you or your loved ones aren’t much for modelling, but that might very well be because you’ve not yet seen what modern mechanical models are like. These aren’t like any you may have seen before, as they represent something of an evolution in the hobby. Want to know more? Then read on…

Mechanical Models in Every Possible Sense

When we’re talking about Time for Machine’s range of metal mechanical models, we’re describing something that, once complete, comes to life and takes you to an altogether different place than traditional models that most people think of. Our 3D metal models have internal working gears, cogs and pistons that whizz around when in motion and believe it or not, there’s no batteries involved!

That’s because when you construct a Time For Machine metal model, you get to build a fully-functioning mini-engine that relies on nothing more than being wound up like a clockwork toy. The sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with creating a machine like this on your own is not something you can get from a smartphone screen.

A Keepsake that Lives Long in the Memory

Ordinarily, when you create a traditional plastic model, the fun stops as soon you’ve pieced it together, as all that you get to do is either hang it up or put it on a shelf. Time For Machine mechanical metal models are quite, quite different, as the fun has only just begun once you’ve successfully completed it!

Our 3D metal models are stunningly beautiful, so they do work very well as decorations for the home, however, when you wind them up, they spring into action, with all their various moving parts harmoniously whirring round to the amazement of anyone watching. They’re very robust too, so you’ve no worries about bits of them falling off when you’re playing either (unlike plastic models which can be very brittle).
