I am a bit baffled as to why I received this.
It was shipped from New Jersey. While I have made ebay purchases from NJ, none are even close to this.

I have two small locomotive kits called some sort of 3D Laser Cut Sheet Metal Kits.

There are likely a couple of hundred tiny parts in each kit all requiring bending and twisting tiny tabs and parts.

Here are a couple pictures.

Well...."Merry Christmas" I guess, better than a sock of coal. I have seen these before & albeit tedious to assemble, they are pretty neat.
it could be that since you are the owner of this forum, that the maker might be seeking some free advertisement for a free sample gift. or just a friend sent you a tidy Lil gift. anyway...enjoy  :)

I am so busy with other projects I will likely give them away unless whoever sent them steps forward to let me know what they would like me to do with them.

Did you or anyone else ever try building one of these Gil? Wife was buying some yarn at hobby store today and they had the tractor on sale for $7 (normal price $11), so I thought I’d give it a try... If it turns out, I’ll probably give it to my grandpa, or maybe I’ll get frustrated and smash it, who knows... 😂

Hi Nick, I don't have the time to build them so will be giving them away in a draw or similar.
