So much fun to put together. Great instructions. Will be ordering more model kits.
Finished it ,all was well organized , the wood was 1st class,no breakage ,all in all,a very good experience.
These models are really well made and a great deal of fun to assemble. The instructions re well illustrated. I find that the parts are rather difficult to remove from the sheets and the odd one breaks. I previously made the tanker truck and there were two full sheets of extra parts but with this steam locomotive and tender there were only a few extra parts included. Customer service is top-notch.
Love this kit! You have to watch the orientation of the drive gears or it won't work... and don't forget to sand (use fine 400 grit sandpaper) and apply wax because friction is your enemy. It is truly a beautiful model! Gotta go order me another kit now!
My kids (13, 15) loved these kits. They enjoyed putting the vehicles together and are asking for more kits.
We bought them on Black Friday when the prices were reduced as first time customers which helped in terms of cost. Waiting for another sale to buy more.
