UGears Mars Buggy
Ugears wooden self-propelled 3D model Mars Buggy, no glue needed
Go far and beyond with the futuristic mini-model of a space conqueror Mars Buggy from the Ugears collection of mechanical models.
Spare 30 minutes or so to enjoy the assembly of an ingenious mechanical space vehicle. Inspired by ever-exciting sci-fi and no less amazing recent developments in the space industry, Ugears engineers pay tribute to the final frontier romantics with a six-wheel mechanical space-rover, the Mars Buggy.
The above mentioned six-wheel arrangement of the model is cleverly inter-connected to provide better maneuvering: this astronaut’s little helper can ride around and over small obstacles to deliver important samples to the base. The roof of the Mars Buggy opens to accommodate small cargo. If you want to use it in your office space, the Buggy can keep and deliver small stationery items such as paperclips, erasers, sharpeners, etc. On the right side of the rover’s cabin, you will find a camera that will keep track of the Martian environment. And solar panels on either sides of the roof won’t let the energy of your Mars Buggy run dry. All the elements of the model, including camera, solar panels and a ladder in the rear end are made of high-quality plywood. On its front side, the rover proudly carries an image of Mars, the distant planet it is designed to roam.
The space vehicle comes in a box of 100 × 275 × 9 mm dimensions. All 95 details are pre-cut in ply-wood boards with high-precision lasers and need no glue or additional tools to put together. Completely assembled, it measures 90 × 62 × 68 mm.
NASA plans to launch humanity’s first expedition to Mars in 2050. Enterprising and ambitious Elon Musk wants to start his own Mars space mission in 2025. The time is right to get ready to conquer the red planet with Ugears’ Mars Buggy!
