My 10 year old likes paper aeroplanes so i got this book for him, the instructions do not contain enough detail for the steps involved in making most of the planes and he struggles to make many of them. I will be looking for a different book with more detail.

This book was bought for my 11 year old son. He has found a lot of the models very hard to follow and the instructions are poor,however some of the models are easier.
