It’s full speed ahead towards new and exciting discoveries with this impressive and advanced Ugears Research Vessel!
Your nautical model has the beauty of a large modern icebreaker and survey boat, inspired by remarkable scientific documentaries.
Piece together the high-grade wooden parts to create the unique “skeleton” design that allows you to view the inner workings of your model!
You can view the hold and engine room, as well as all the parts required to make your model move. Ready to carry out some research?
Your model is equipped with everything you need. From a bathyscaphe for deep-sea exploration, to a swing jib crane to manage cargo!
It also includes a small motor-boat, life boat, drop ramp and opening hold hatch just like a real-life vessel!
To propel your model, use the special lever to switch manually between three movements – forward, turn and automatic manoeuvring.
So how is it powered? Your vessel uses the signature Ugears rubber-band motor and is managed by a pendulum!
The clever gearing arrangement imitates the sound of a diesel engine and provides a smooth and steady pace for your vehicle.
There’s no glue or additional tools required for assembly, simply push out the laser-cut parts and follow the illustrated instructions.
Please note: Your model is not designed for use in real water, instead, it mimics the workings of a real-life research vessel.
