This little buggy released in 1999 came in multiple packages with different numbers as part of a series of 4 micro models.  As 1258 it came in standard Technic packaging in a small box.  As 3001 it was available as a polybag only in Japan with Kabaya candy.  There is no difference apart from the packaging.

I've never seen an air powered dune buggy before so I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to be, but I support the use of blue.

Does this model have the least interesting "function" of any Technic model?  Quite possibly.  But at least, even at this tiny scale, the designers considered it important that a Technic model have at least some function.


This model has a single function: a moving propeller.  The prop is connected 1:1 with the rear axle using a rubber band.
