Ladies and gentlemen: a gift-giving hint. Everyone loves gizmos. Whirly-giggy thing-a-me-bobs that move - especially when assembly is involved. How rewarding is that? Ugears has that particular niche well and truly covered.

Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and biographies of outstanding marine explorers, the Research Vessel recreates the might and beauty of large modern icebreakers and survey boats.

The model features all you need to implement proper research: a bathyscaphe for deep-sea exploration, a small motor-boat and life boat, 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 parts of the Research Vessel are made of high-grade eco-friendly wood. No glue or additional assembly tools are needed. The skeleton design of the 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.

Model size: 15.2 x 4.3 x 9.8 in (38.5 x 11 x 25 cm)
Package size: 14.9 x 6.7 x 1.7 in (37.8 x 17 x 4.2 cm)
