Makit proudly presents... The Railroad Hand Car! It is a scale model of a hand car that works with a micro motor and a switch to turn it on-off or change direction. It also has an optional driver and a wagon.
Below you'll find step by step instructions to assemble the hand car. You can also use them to mount the trailer (I didn't write separate instructions because if you have already assembled the main car, the trailer should be pretty straightforward).
You'll need to solder the switch but, don't be afraid, it is not a complicated soldering job and could be a good first try!
There is one straight track and one with 22.5 degrees of rotation. You can mount them and change them easily on a flat surface. If you want to make the track more permanent, you can print some track clamps and secure the connections. In fact, I'm working on hanging a circuit from the roof! I'll show you when it's done. ;)
You can also print them with two colors (or wood) to get a more realistic look.
Detailed assembly instructions can be found at the project's page: http://makitpro.com/index.php/2017/08/22/the-railroad-hand-car/
