Attached to the Submarine Mini Motor is a rudder which allows for the setting of directions. In addition, water-resistant double-sided tape, sandpaper, a styrene suction cap, and a sticker are included. Uses one R03/AAA/UM4 battery (sold separately).

  • Uses an R03/AAA/UM4 size battery. The submarine mini motor moves very well thanks to its lightness, and has great water resistant qualities. Completely closing the submarine body switches the motor on.
  • The floats can be easily shaped using a styrene cutter knife or a retractable knife. The boards can be detailed with paints used with plastic models. ※Acrylic and enamel paints, also paint markers can be used.
  • Cut the Styrofoam boards matching the ship's shape, then attach by using the water-resistant double-sided tape. Next, stick on the sticker then install the styrene suction cap. When the bottom of the ship is thin, cut the sticker in a circular shape for the styrene suction cap. ※For 1/700 Waterline models, do not insert a weight into the ship.
