Build your own cute four-legged friend with the Tamiya Mechanical Turtle Kit. The electric motor powers the front and back 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 you a peek at the turtle's internal mechanisms. These Tamiya animal kits are fun to build--collect them all! Race this guy along with our Mechanical Rabbit..just make sure to give him a little handicap!
