Build 8 models of realistic heavy-duty construction vehicles and control them with a remote-control unit!
The models in this Thames & Kosmos Remote-Control Machines Construction Vehicles kit can be controlled both to drive around on the floor and to move their work tools, such as buckets, shovels, forks, and cranes. For ages 6 - 10.
With this 227-Piece Thames and Kosmos construction kit, you can build:
- a bulldozer with a blade that can be raised and lowered
- a backhoe with a digging bucket that can move inward and outward
- a dump truck with a dump bed that can be raised up to empty its contents
- a mobile crane truck with a crane arm that moves up and down
- a skid loader with a bucket that also moves up and down
- a road grader with a scraper blade that turns left and right
- a forklift with a fork that can be raised and lowered
- a concrete mixer truck with a mixing drum that rotates
Instructions for two additional models — a reach forklift and a wheel tractor-scraper — are available online.
A 64-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions.
Read the manual to learn about:
- how the real-life versions of these awesome machines are so powerful
- how their various mechanisms function
- how they can use physics to their advantage to move massive amounts of soil and rock
- the concepts of force, torque, and simple machines
Batteries required: AA (3) and AAA (2)
