I bought three of these, thinking they'd look great mounted on my wall. And they probably would have had I ever been able to assemble them.
It's odd. There must be something about the number three because I see others did exactly the same. I'd hoped to mount them as they were, white card, one above the other on a white wall - but I quickly realised that was never going to happen.
Fiddley is not the word. You need an engineering degree (or a Blue Peter badge) to even begin to contemplate putting these things together. It's super difficult and the instructions are pretty poor too which doesn't help.
It's takes forever to cut out the shapes with a scalpel (which are organised in a fairly illogical sequence to save on card), and one little slip of the blade or mistake sticking the pieces together and the whole model is ruined.
I bought three - messed up two. Didn't even entertain wasting another three weekends on the third so chucked it out in a fit of rage. It was lucky the guns where paper, because I was so angered by them, someone would have been shot.
