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.
Body, legs, motor, gearbox, switch and screws are included in the kit. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts. Cable ends are rubber capped with cut areas pre-marked for easy wiring.
The secret of movement resides in the front leg plate. This plate is attached with a ball joint that serves as a fulcrum to transform crank plate forward/backward movement to make the turtle crawl.
Clear switch with green transparent parts add a cool, futuristic look. Thanks to this switch, the turtle can crawl forward and backward.
Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads or on long-haired carpet.
Tamiya now presents the Mechanical Tiger as its next addition to the Robocraft Series. Power from the rotating motor is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the tiger walk.
