He asked his parents... he asked Santa.... he asked anyone who would listen.
Unfortunately... "Your search - Remote Controlled Lobster - did not match any documents" and Santa nor his elves had the chops to pull of such a radical thing :(
Luckily for this little boy, he'sgot a crazy uncle who likes to make stuff !
Step 1: R&D
I started out looking for an existing RC vehicle that was somewhat lobster shaped.
I eventually came across the Tyco Terrainiac which was far more lobster shaped than i could have ever hoped for!
and guess what else?
IT WORKS ON LAND AND WATER!!!
Just like a real lobster.
Step 2: Where to start
The first step was to divide the styrene shell in to pieces that would fit well on to the body of the vehicle.
i divided the shell with an xacto blade and rough fitted it to the vehicle
