A slinky caterpillar with a butterfly as a friend.
This is a wonderful caterpillar model is an automaton to build yourself from Timberkits. All the pieces are pre-engineered so that you just need to follow the detailed instructions and piece it together. The model works with a hand crank which is included or can be attached to a battery pack to make it move constantly – available on this website. This is a beginner level build – great for those who want to try and build a model for the first time.
Great to be able to see the technology actually working within the model – a real sense of achievement.
- The movement is fantastic
- It is a great introduction into model making
- They can add a battery pack to make it move independently
