UGEARS: Self-propelled mechanical models (#2)

We are still receiving a lot of letters from people who learned about our project too late.

We decided to help them to receive our models.

For this, we will re-launch the project on the 5 of January. It will last 7 days.

Please notice that the delivery within our new campaign (#2) will be done in May 2016.

Everyone who bought models during our first campaign (#1) will receive the delivery in April 2016.

If you have selected a few models, the shipping cost will be less than if we send them one by one.

Buyers in the United States and Canada will receive a shipment from Miami. Consumers in the EU will receive a shipment from Poland.

Dear Backers:

1) If you like to add a model or buy more then one of the same model: Pledge the total sum for the models you like to buy. Write the total cost of all your models. Simply add the cost of all models to your pledge.

For example, $58+$17+$30+$25 = $130 your pledge.

NOTE: If you backed in both campaigns your models will not ship together. We will ship the models from the first campaign by April 2016. The models for this campaign (#2) will ship in May 2016.

2) After this kickstarter campaign (#2) ends will receive a survey where you indicate which models you pledged for and your shipping address. (February 2016)

Price is NOT including shipping.

3) Once we receive your completed survey we will use that information to calculate your total shipping costs and message you for the total amount owed for shipping and payment methods.

Remember: Shipping is NOT included in the amount we pledge and is paid separately.

Locomotive with tender "UGEARS 460" employs all technical solutions used in the previous models. It looks realistic and very unusual at the same time. Spinning gears, pistons and wheels carry the core and soul of XIX century engineering, the time of a technical competition between the developed countries in steamers’ construction – whose engine is larger, faster, and more powerful. Those days’ locomotives represented the mainstream of technical progress.
