Mechanical model research ship, for adults
It is time to lift anchor and set sail with full speed ahead in search of new discoveries: Ugears' new model ship “Research Ship” is waiting for you.
Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and the biographies of outstanding marine researchers, the research vessel embodies the strength and beauty of large modern icebreakers and research vessels.
Your new ship has everything you need to put your own research into action: a bathyscaphe submarine for exploring the deep sea, a small motor boat and lifeboat, a ramp, an opening hatch, and other fun and interesting elements that you will also find on real ships. The model is equipped with a jib crane to handle the cargo and lift the bathyscaph out of the water. Use the crane to pull the bathyscaph from the depths and secure it on the special platform.
All parts of the research vessel are made of high quality wood and neither glue nor additional tools are required for assembly. The skeleton design of the hull of the ship gives you a view of the hold and the engine room, where you can observe what makes the ship move. The drive energy of the model is generated by a rubber motor and regulated with the help of a pendulum. A clever gear configuration in this assembly mimics the noise of a diesel engine and ensures that the ship moves smoothly and steadily. The model has three types of movement - forward, curve and automatic maneuvering. These are controlled by a lever that you can operate manually.
Feel the salty breeze as you cruise to future discoveries on Ugears' research vessel!
