4-leg Crawling-Type Mechanical Turtle|
Tamiya presents the 4-leg crawling-type Mechanical Turtle as its next Robocraft Series item. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the Turtle crawl. Each pair of legs (front and rear) are molded as one piece and front leg plate is attached with a ball joint that serves as a fulcrum to realistically imitate turtle crawling. Legs and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the turtle a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the turtle's internal mechanisms. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts.
Length: 166mm Weight: 95g (without batteries) Body material: ABS resin Gearbox, motor, reverse switch also included. Screwdriver for assembly is provided. Requires one R04/AAA/UM4 battery (sold separately).
