5.0 out of 5 stars A great starting point 26 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Made this when I was a kid and had plenty of fun putting it together. Twenty years later I decided to try my hand at model making again, and despite having made numerous ones as a child, this was the one that stayed with me (well...this one and the Bismarck), and was my first choice to try again.

The kit is great. Brushes and paints mean you can get started straight away, and there is a surprising amount of detail in the actual model. What is contained in the box is enough to make a perfectly good, basic model of the Ark Royal. However if like me you want to go into a bit more detail, you'll require some more paint. The White Ensign Models website also has extra details available which are designed to specifically fit this model, and I'd highly recommend them for the more advanced model makers.

All in all, this is is a great model for beginners, and a great starting point for more experienced model makers. The fact that it is an aircraft carrier and therefore not loaded with the deck detail of a battleship doesn't detract from the finished product at all, and if you take the time, effort and patience, you'll be left with an outstanding replica of a legendary ship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected pleasure 7 Dec 2010
By J. Acs
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had one of these as a child and it survived several house moves for about 20 odd years. The aircraft on it and the multitude of guns and a little imagination and I had far more fun out of it than from battle ships of which I had a few also. Don't expect a work of art or a pleasing presence. The ship is quite functional and unexciting to look at but the lifts, AA guns and launches make up an interesting model and one whic is easy to make look good even for the inexperienced model maker. Note that this is i:600 not 1:700 scale as many competitive naval kits are. All the better for beign a slightly larger scale though. Shame Airfix don't churn out more of these things - especially WW1 ships which can be quite exciting craft. Their Vosper and Eboat are well worth looking out for though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value 27 Aug 2013

Loved the airfix model and it would have gotten a 5 for the value and product type. However although it says that all the colours are included they are not. Would have been disappointed if it had been for the full price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice kit 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I made this kit years ago, I thought it would be nice to revisit it especially as you now get all the paints with it.
One criticism is that the paints were not as described, two of the colours were missing and two duplicated. This is the 2nd modern Airfix kit I have purchased with quality control issues but it didn't stop me enjoying the kit.

The parcel arrived in good condition, no dents or splits. Very well packed and sealed which means the original packaging of the model (Airfix) was still in good condition.

This arrived promptly and was well packaged. It looks good as far as the box goes. I can't say any more until my grandson unwraps it and tries to put it together!

christmas present for brother - one he hasn't already got. Not too happy with postage charge as I did not request next day delivery and didn't get it actually.
