    Easy model to make, but awful casting quality and minimal details. Overall unsatisfactory, even for a beginners kit.

    Pros:
    - Simple construction.
    - Comes with tools for construction (although I used my own).
    - Front wheels pivot and all wheels rotate freely.

    Cons:
    - Very poor casting quality. I had to cut off a lot of seams.
    - Minimal detail - linked in part to the casting quality - e.g. the hood intake is not fully modelled and the interior is extremely basic.
    - Missing parts - e.g. no number plate piece, although number plate decals are included.

    We bought this for my nine year old son's birthday as he is a big James Bond fan. It is rated as Level one for beginners & was within the right age range (8 yrs +). He has previously made lots of fairly tricky Lego models so we thought this was a step-up. Also, my husband loved to make Airfix aeroplanes when he was a similar age, so he was looking forward to helping our son.

    In reality, it was really tricky & my husband ended up making it himself & struggling! He said it was harder than any Airfix model he had ever made.

    The finished product looked nice but it was just too hard for your average 8-9 year old. One for the grown-up boys I'd say!

    Generally okay. Delivery took a while and some of the sprues in the kit had snapped but fortunately all parts were intact. My kit also didn't come with the precision model glue dispenser as advertised but instead the standard "toothpaste tube".
    I don't regret buying it for the money I spent but it was a bit below par for what I expect.

    This toy is very good but I would warn you that some parts don't fit together greatly. If you have never made an airfix kit before then I think that you should pick an easier one because it is quite fiddly. The good thing is that it comes with glue, paint and a paintbrush but as I said it's not great for a first kit.

    It looks good, but is awful - none of the pieces fit together. Even tried to file them to get smooth edges - awful. The paints you get are water based - when putting on an oil based product such as this they just run/streak. It looks a good deal, but don't bother, keep your money - they say if a deal is too good to be true it probably is - and this proves that analogy.Best place for it is the bin.

    Found this in Works for a fiver. At that price it was good value.

    Fairly straightforward for an adult to put together. I would advise using diferent glue for attatching the windows and lights.

    The painting guide could have been better. Use the brick red paint as an undercoat for the axles, exhaust, etc. Not impressed with the grey paint for the upholstery, a tan colour would be better. The red paint included is suitable as an alternative colour to black for the car body. It is the same paint used in the Jaguar starter set.
