    Cool, but how did you make the front paddle wheels?

    thnx mischka,you mean the back paddle wheels, it is the same back wheels of the car i just cut off the outer skin.
    if your car's wheels doesn't in the same structure like these above, you can easily make two paddles same as the front one(from plastic card).

    Boaty Mc. boat face! ;)

    Wow, interesting. I can't figure out just how the STEERING works?
