    Model Functions:

    -wind-up propulsion, or towing
    -posable arms

    Specifications:
    -part count: 499
    -size: 18 x 31 x 15,5 cm

    The winding-up works by pulling an axle which makes the wind-up gear mash with the gear of the main drive shaft. Rotating the axle adds energy to the pullback motor. By pushing the axle back, the wind-up gear releases the main drive shaft and the model starts moving.
