What is the value of the Gakken Mini Theremin pots? Answered

I'd like to rehouse my Gakken Mini Theremin in a larger, stronger case. This, of course, means replacing all of the controls with panel mount components. So, I would replace the on/off switch and the potentiometers to adjust the sound (I already replaced the antennae). I do not know what the values of the potentiometers are, though. Anyone know? Thanks, Noah

Motorized Gakken STRANDBEEST desktop model kit

Has anyone replaced (or plan to replace) the Gakken desktop strandbeest model kit's wind turbine with a toy DC motor and gear system?  If so, I would love to hear what specific motor and gear system was used and how you mounted everything on the model. It would take a motor with adequate torque to operate the twelve legs, a properly sized gear/gears to operate the model at a moderate speed  and some simple way to connect the motor/gear to the existing gear system.  I've seen hacks for K'nex, tinker toy, erector set, aduino, & custom builds but nothing added to the Gakken mini strandbeest kit except a hamster wheel.
