Steampunk Rhinoceros Beetle Kit
Drawing inspiration from the formidable rhinoceros beetle in nature, visionary designers have seamlessly integrated steampunk elements, resulting in a visually striking and highly mechanical model that meticulously captures the intricate details of its body shape, horn, legs, and wings. Crafted with precision, the main body of the beetle features impact-resistant ABS polymer structure material, complemented by hard wings adorned with leather and limbs made from soft PVC material, ensuring optimal protection for this stunning model.
Functioning as the squad's overall commander, the rhinoceros beetle assumes a pivotal role in the team's dynamics. Its intelligent brain, housed within the core armored horn, enables swift coordination of tactics and precise delivery of mission instructions. Hydraulic mechanical forelimbs, orange peel leather armor, and a membranous wing heat abstractor enhance its battlefield performance while providing defense against enemy attacks. The model showcases eight sets of brass piston connecting rods, illustrating the high-speed operation of the engine cylinder. Furthermore, an LED engine indicator light illuminates the internal mechanical structure, intensifying the perception of power and elevating the model's overall coolness. Upon connection to the custom base, a gentle touch to the activation point triggers the model, propelling the motor to a speed of 1200 rpm, with the membranous wings vibrating 618 times per minute—an astonishing simulation of the real rhinoceros beetle's movements.
