This is a great set. All models are quite challenging to build (for my six year old) and fun to play with. Make sure to get the instructions for the bonus fourth model (a tilt-rotor) from the Lego site. You need to join the Lego Club and enter 'wings' as the code. This is not obvious from the instructions included in the box, I had to do some searching on the forums. The tilt-rotor model is excellent.
At the moment it is in Hovercraft build but only last week it became a jet plane then a two armed plane as son called it. Whichever one it is in this Lego set seem fun being built and when finished look good too. Easy to build thought the propellers did take a little while longer to sort out.
This set is value for money in both our 11 years old mind and also mine as a parent, for under £12 when bought and one that you can actually make three models from worth it.
'Wow just the thing I was looking at' son screamed when he opened up this on his birthday .... A true Lego fan.
Lego does seem expensive when you look at the box, you mentally calculate the bricks and how much, will it be durable or just some other bits to get sucked into the cleaner again! With this set though well worth while, in my mind certainly value for money and the build well thought out and no fiddly bits that can fall off when all finished on any of the three models.
A great Christmas gift idea for any one who loves Lego
