    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).

    Hi Berry, actually I made this boat to my cousin's son so it is no longer with me. But if you could send me some pictures for your work and tell me more about what you need to do exactly, I can help you for that.
    have a great day!

    does your product worked? i mean, umm, i'm sorry but does the materials can endure the water? can they not be affected when it is placed in it? and also, does you car has 4 wheels? if yes, what happened to the others? i'm sorry for bothering you but your answer is badly needed for our project. thank you :D

    Hello, thanks for your comment.
    Sure it worked probably.
    If u see the plastic container cover the material and I use silicone stick to fill the gaps between the container and the plate.
    Ofcourse the car has 4 wheels,The back wheels is the paddles now and there is no need to the fornt wheels so i just take the front motor and used it for steering.
    Remeber always use silicone or insulation tape to protect the parts from water.
    If u need any help please tell me.
