The internet is something that has revolutionized the way we all live over the last 30 years. However, it has made Christmas gifting trickier, as it’s that much harder to find something that offers a true Christmas morning surprise. That said, have you considered introducing your family to the exciting world of 3D metal mechanical model building?

Now, we want you to forget everything you may already know about model-making, as the metal models from Time for Machine are unlike anything you’re likely to have seen before. They’re truly stunning, living examples of the beauty of engineering and they’re great for developing our minds too!

These Are 3D Metal Models that Moooove!

There are other 3D models out there on the market, sure, but there are very few that have fully working, clockwork mini-engines inside that allow them to move under their own power! Once constructed, these innovative metal mechanical models simply need to be ‘wound up’ with the key provided to see them spring into life.

No batteries are needed and creations like the Silver Bullet and the Glorious Cabrio 2 from the Time for Machine Range are able to travel several metres on a single charge, making them fun to play with long after the model-building enjoyment has finished.

Suitable for different Skill Levels

Please note that recommended age is 14+

Another great thing about Time for Machine 3D metal models is that while they look incredibly complex and intricate from the outside, they have been designed to be able to be put together by modellers of different levels of ability. Sure, there are more advanced choices than others in the range, but most are able to be completed with a modest modelling experience.

Each metal model comes with full colour multi-lingual instructions and if you get really stuck, there are instruction videos available on YouTube to help you along. This means that the joy and sense of achievement that comes from creating something so beautiful with your own hands can be enjoyed by anyone.

Getting Your Family Away from their Screens at Christmas
