Tugboat Mechanical Model Kit

If you ever wanted to sail the free waves towards the blurred line where the water blends with the sky, you will need this new sweet nautical model to help you prepare for you. A great new tugboat mechanical model kit from wooden models manufacturer UGears. The idea behind the tugboat is to create a functional mechanism, but with a certain spice that would make it both down-to-earth and interesting. And of course – it was supposed to be a type of marine transport.

The Tugboat is driven by a rubber-band motor powered by the tension of the rubber connected with a bearing. The reduction gear transfers energy to the drive wheel and further to the asymmetrical wheel pair. The pendulum slows and evens the motion of the tugboat.

The asymmetry of the wheel pair grants the model its unique way of moving, imitating a boat rocking on the waves, while the working pendulum creates a specific noise similar to one produced by the real-life diesel motor many boats are equipped with.
