EWA models are construction kits made of natural plywood with rubber band mechanical elements for DIY assembly without any tools.

 

Developed by our engineers, the model structure is reliable and designed for long-term play. We use only high-quality birch plywood (FSC, CARB P2). The design is reinforced with strong wooden locks and precisely calculated slots for them.

Thus, our model will not break, if some cute 45-year-old child accidentally hits it with his foot.

 

Most of our dynamic models are equipped with rubber-band motors.

Do you want to see how this works? Just wind them up and watch!

Enemy toy castle does not give up without a fight? Just shoot the shell from our trebuchet and take it off!

Hostiles detected! One shot from our self-propelled gun will solve the problem.

 

We have a wide range of models of different size and complexity for any age group, starting at 14. This can be an exciting and breathtaking toy for teenagers or a new fascinating hobby for adults. Overall, this is an exciting entertainment and pastime for the whole family.

 

The number of parts of EWA construction kits ranges from 50 to 700 pieces, which reflects the smallest details of the model. No matter how experienced you are, just take the kit, assemble it and enjoy the view!

 

 

For our models, we use only high-quality non-hazardous natural materials. Non-toxic plywood made of natural birch and hypoallergenic rubber provides safety. But, please, do not taste it anyway.

Besides, you can make a colorful upgrade of models. Just color your assembled construction kit by your own paints and get +100 bonus armor and +200 speed bonus!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We shall do everyting possible to deliver your preordered construction kits for Christmas! 

Ho-ho-ho!

EWA is a small team of inspired, adult children with the ambitious idea of creating something more than just a toy or a puzzle for both children and adults. Nobody remembers how the idea of a plywood set came up. But we remember how we dragged our first laser bench into our friend's garage to create a draft version of our T-34 template.

 

Since then, we have evolved and almost completely refused to make models with glue.

And now, people, we are ready to share our achievements with all of you.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are ready to complete all stages of our project properly and in time, but not everything depends on us. At the moment we can recognise the following possible risks and challenges:

1. Delay in the materials supply - working with the 3rd party suppliers there is always the risk of delay of materials supply. To date we were lucky not having such kind of problems with them. Our partners are reliable, working in a good and honest manner. Furthermore, we are located across the street from them, but in case of such problems appearance it will take no longer than two weeks to resolve them finding alternative supplier.

2. Damage of the equipment - our the one and only bench is like a part of our EWA family. We take care about it like our own child. Fortunately, it has never been broken by any reason, but in case of damage we have the warranty from the vendor to repair it. Thus, in a worst case scenario it will take no longer than a week or two to fix it or we will buy the new one.

3. Delays in the rewards delivery - we are going to distribute our models among backers from all over the world. Sometimes it may take longer to deliver the parcel. Also sometimes it may even lost. But we can guarantee that every backer will get his reward and we will do all our best for that.

So, we can see the maximum possible delay of the delivery after the campaign from 1 to 1,5 months. Anyway, if some kind of problem appears we will inform you immediately and professionally resolve it as fastest as possible.
