The functionning is basic, A M motor placed in the sleigh makes rotates lever which is connected to the frame. The whole sleigh plus reinder are mounted on beams and articulated frame, in order that when one goes up, second goes down. The M motor also drives the reinder thanks to U-join and makes rotate 4 lever which are connected to the legs. The kinematic of the legs is made with one lever, a swing L shaped beam, and two beams. This simplified configuration is inspired by work of Shadowfax lego based on  and the work of awesome Theo Jansen (the father of many kinetic animal).

Here is the gif result :

I have spend many hours on MLcad to build the CAD model and Lpub to rendering the building instructions and after some pictures adjustment I was abbe to propose the instructions as a PDF, in 72 pages / 154mo  and 971 parts ! This building instructions was made to make possible the print after with a white background and high DPI definition in standard A4 size, that is why it doesn’t look like the Lego Official Instruction graphically.
