I recently finished a Lego model of a Porsche 911 GT2 RS with 2700 parts. It was difficult and sometimes frustrating because I made mistakes and had to tear it down and rebuild it several times. My point is it can be done and I didn’t worry about parts breaking because they are made of ABS plastic. The car has tons of gears and they all work! It’s expensive but worth it.
Your Aviator kit looks just as good, less parts but less money and the engineering looks great. I broke 2 major pieces just getting them out of the frame! They were not the first pieces I removed successfully.
I am still waiting for replacement parts (it’s been 3 weeks). I put the helicopter together with much difficulty because every connection has to be sanded and waxed no matter what the instructions say because the fit is so tight. The gears on the helicopter are so flimsy that I lost at least 6 teeth off the small cogs just trying to get the rotor to spin. If I have the same trouble with the airplane I will not purchase anything else from you. I will try the forums to see if anyone else has these problems!
ALL of the products that I have bought have been received very well. My sons and husband are looking forward to getting many more kits . They are fun to put together and the work well.
