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.

All you need included:

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.

Turtle crawling movement strikingly rendered:

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 type switch:

Clear switch with green transparent parts add a cool, futuristic look. Thanks to this switch, the turtle can crawl forward and backward.

Crawling the Turtle:

Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads or on long-haired carpet.

  • Total length: 166mm
  • Total weight: 95g (w/ out batteries)
  • Body material: ABS resin
  • Gearbox, motor, reverse switch also included.
  • A screwdriver for the assembly is provided.

This four-legged Mechanical Turtle crawls when motor rotation is transferred to the legs via crank plates and linkage rods. The front leg plate is attached with a ball joint that serves as a fulcrum to imitate a real turtle.
