If this project looks familiar to you, it might be because another sea turtle project, albeit a much larger one, made the second review round of 2022, back in August of last year.

Despite the two project's similarities, this project may have a trump card, which is its moveable head and rotating flippers that mimic a turtle's swimming action. Another impressive feature of the build is the turtle's shell that includes several interlocking sections positioned at various angles to create the curved shape.
