Tamiya presents its next Robocraft Series item, the 2-leg walking-type Mechanical Ostrich. Motor rotating power is transferred to the legs via crank plates to make the ostrich walk. Legs and body on which the gearbox is mounted employ transparent-colored parts, giving the ostrich a funky look. Reverse switch is also transparent, giving you a peek at the ostrich's internal mechanisms. Assembly is very simple with use of screws and snap-lock parts.
