The 4-leg walking-type Mechanical Giraffe's walking style realistically rendered. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the Giraffe walk. The long neck and legs, which have been specially molded to replicate the unique motifs of the actual giraffe, and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the giraffe a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the giraffe's internal mechanisms. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts. A screwdriver for the assembly is provided. Requires one AA. Continuous running time with Alkaline battery, 1.5 hrs. These Tamiya animal kits are fun to build--collect them all!
