Quacking Fun!
This assembly kit creates a cute Duck equally at home on land and water. It features a central Submarine Motor Mini that powers crank plates via a gearbox, and the feet on those plates do the walking and paddling. Plates are connected to the neck via link rods, which convert the rotation of the plate into reciprocating motion, the head bobbing forwards and back. The roller and sponge float at the back of the model can be repositioned to apply a turn to your Duck. This model includes all the parts needed for simple snap-fit and screw-together assembly.
