Download This is our model of Crom Dubh's dog at Downpatrick head, Co. Mayo. We made a chassis using a combination of 12-stud beams and 10x2 plates and the RCX was held up by two big wheels and two small wheels. We fixed two motors into each side of the chassis for the wheels and another motor on top for the mouth.We fixed a crank onto the motor, and two connector pegs with axle and a cam were fixed into the beam. Then we used an axle and put it through three beams with two bends, for the top of the mouth and we did the same for the bottom.
