Deep-Sea Research Vessel
Go full speed ahead towards new discoveries with the Deep-Sea Research Vessel
Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and biographies of outstanding marine explorers, the Deep-Sea Mechanical Research Vessel is a beauty of large modern icebreakers and survey boats.
A DISPLAY WOODEN Mechanical Research Vessel WITH ALL THE BELLS & WHISTLES
Your new boat has all you need to implement proper research: a bathyscaphe for deep-sea exploration: a small motor-boat, a lifeboat, a drop ramp, opening hold hatch, and other fun and interesting elements you find in real-life vessels.
The model is equipped with a swing jib crane to manage cargo and hoist out the bathyscaphe. Use the crane to pull the bathyscaphe out of the depths and secure it on a special extension platform.
All details of the Mechanical Research Vessel are made of high-grade eco-friendly wood that needs no glue or additional instruments to assemble.
The “skeleton” design of the Vessel’s body allows you to look into the hold and engine room and see what makes her move. The energy driving the model is produced by a rubber-band motor and managed by a pendulum. A clever gear arrangement in this block imitates the sound of a diesel engine and provides a smooth and steady pace of the Vessel.
The model has three movement modes – forward, turn, and automatic maneuvering. The modes are controlled with a lever you can switch manually.
