A steam engine made from cardboard, running with proper boiling steam – is that really possible? Oh yes!!!

Our Description

A steam engine made from cardboard, running with proper boiling steam – is that really possible? Oh yes!!!

See for yourself: this model not only looks great, it also works, happily chuff-chuffing away. The boiler, made from an aluminium tin, has a magnetic safety valve. The aluminium fire box underneath holds five tea lights. Both are enclosed in a safety cage made from galvanised wire mesh. The steam is conducted through a closed system of tubes and plastic foil before being emitted through the chimney.

This clever construction keeps cardboard and steam separated with the piston being moved by a bellows made from the finger of a plastic glove.

Pre-punched kit with gold printing.

Construction time: 20-30 hours

Includes: aluminium sheet, aluminium tin, wire mesh, bearings, syringes, silicon tube, ring magnet, plastic glove, steel axles, and other parts needed for construction.

Size: 300mm x 210mm x 210mm
