Well, all in all it's been a bit of a mixed bag as far as these kits go. I had always wanted to do an airfix kit so when the Doctor who ones came out I snapped them up (Having been a fan since childhood it still rates as my all-time favourite program)
These are very detailed kits, I've really been impressed, and the booklet does give you a lot of good tips that can make your model look really fantastic.
That said, the booklet's layout can be confusing and annoying (the building section with base paint colours is seperate to the painting instructions, which means you have to flick through multiple pages to find out what to do, then realise your paint mix has dried while you were looking for what you wanted!)
Not a lot of thought seems to have gone into practicality either - with the WA set, putting the TARDIS actually together had to be completed before the glue set so adjustments could be made, and trying to get the cardboard backing and the console inside took me a while (the cardboard pushes out the side of the TARDIS, the console is meant to sit on a notch in the back that was clearly too high for the matching one on the console) - I can only hope there won't be this trouble with this kit!
The other whinge I had was that the colours supplied are limited - obviously enough when you have to fit some many paints into a small kit anyway - but also that a few of the colours in the 'welcomne aboard' kit have been misprinted (I haven't checked the DiM kit to see if this is the same - I only found the WA errors as I was painting) So if you think something's the wrong colour, check it - you might be right!Read more ›
Completion is easy, though one or two bits of the assembly may be tricky for young hands.
The paints in the kit are terrible and don't cover very well at all. I bought some other paints from a model shop which covered first time - when I tried to paint the black parts with the original paint it took FIVE coats to only just cover it!!!
All in all its a good kit but just be aware bits of it are not as they are supposed to be - this is a manufacturing fault though nothing to do with seller.
The BBC should have invested in this kit better then maybe it wouldn't have these issues.
Would also be nice to see other kits out there for other Dr Who enemies - ie Cybermen, Sontarens, etc.... There is a massive lack of 'build your own models' on the market!!
