The Mechanical Ice-Breaker

Introducing our most unique wooden model yet. Inspired by classic scientific documentaries and biographies of outstanding marine explorers, the Ice Breaker is the physical might and beauty of large modern icebreakers and survey boats.

Time to weigh anchor and go full speed ahead towards new discoveries.

Explore the Vessel's features

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 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.

This Vessel produces motion

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 manoeuvring. The modes are controlled with a lever you can switch manually.

Made with high-grade eco-friendly wood

All details of the Ice Breaker 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.

Made of high quality plywood; assembly requires no glue or cutting.

Our Brains Love The Work
