Dredgers large and small are at work across the world, keeping waterways and shipping lanes open, removing debris and, increasingly, plastic waste. This little dredger has 42 press-out parts laser-cut from superior 3mm birch plywood, a highly sustainable, safe material. Plywood has been around for thousands of years and has many, many uses in industry and in the home.
Dredgers must have a means of lifting material from the water, this one has a bucket with a winch and a winch arm or jib to lift the bucket. The whole mechanism rotates to allow the bucket to dump is contents. The model has a wheelhouse and a door at the rear of the hull for easy play access.
This kit is a little more complex and so perhaps more suited to children a little older, but still the same ease of assembly with visual instructions, pva glue and cord supplied.
