Tamiya now presents the Mechanical Tiger as its next addition to the Robocraft Series. Power from the rotating motor is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the tiger walk. Tiger's body parts have been molded with yellow semi-transparent plastic, giving the tiger a futuristic look. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts.
The galloping racehorse with jockey is loads of fun to build, loads of fun to play with, and educational too! Employing left and right legs moving at the same time, the legs and wheel base have been designed for stability and faster running. Overall this galloping racehorse can run 1.3 times faster than the mechanical rabbit.
This is a four-legged mechanical dog with various speed controls. The dog walks by transferring motor revolution to reciprocating motion via crank and linkage rod. Main body and legs are made of transparent yellow parts to allow viewing of internal mechanisms. Construction is simple as parts can easily be attached with screws. Wiring has also been made simple.
