Archie the Catapillar Soldier

Built by Geoff Carter in September 2008

From Bernard Perier's Zkwyx Meccanaut book.

Archie is a Caterpillar Soldier from the planet Loonia (also encountered by Zkwyx on his travels). Archie is powered by an MR motor, and works in the same way as Grubby - though, in this case, the model goes up and down instead of side to side. The ratchets here are on the front and rear axles - as Archie's middle rises, the rear wheels move forward and as he falls, the front wheels roll forward.
