Giraffe's Walking Style Realistically Rendered
Tamiya presents its next Robocraft Series item, the 4-leg walking-type Mechanical Giraffe. 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.
Walking the Giraffe
Run on flat, smooth surfaces. Avoid running over slopes, on bumpy roads or on long-haired carpet. The relaxed, long-legged walking style of the mechanical giraffe will provide hours of fun!
