Time to weigh anchor and go full speed ahead towards new discoveries
with Ugears nautical model, the Research Vessel.
Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and biographies of
outstanding marine explorers, the Research Vessel is the incarnate might and
beauty of large modern icebreakers and survey boats.
Your new boat has all you need to implement proper research: a
bathyscaphe for deep-sea exploration, a small motor-boat and a 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 details of the Research Vessel are made of high-grade eco-friendly
wood that need 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
