The Salty Sailor, our intrepid adventurer is at the helm as his boat pitches and tosses on the ocean waves. The fun doesn’t stop there, you can go on to paint or decorate your model.
Confident level Timberkits require a little bit more skill and patience making them all the more satisfying when complete.
Automata kits are ingenious and fascinating combinations of wooden parts and mechanical linkages. Supplied as a kit of parts with assembly diagrams and glue; building each model is an education in itself and the end result wonderfully entertaining. The kits are a joy to make for all ages from 9 to 90 years; younger children can get involved with adult help.
All the wooden parts come from sustainable forestry and are fully machined with no further need for specialist tools.
Finished model dimensions: Width: 180mm, Height: 260mm, Depth: 120mm.
When you've finished, you can bring your model to life with one of the universal drive kits; either battery (107132) or mains power (107324).
