Aviation engineers and technicians in-the-making can now flex their skills with Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet. Designed by Meccano, formerly Erector, and developed in partnership with Boeing, this model airplane building kit is set an accessible novice-level. Constructing this plane, which measures 13" long, is the ideal project for young minds in need of a challenge (and older minds who love to help). This S.T.E.M project requires between 1-3 hours of focus, strategic thinking and creative problem solving - all skills essential to a child's development. Building a realistic model jet from the wheels up is bound to leave kids with a deep sense of satisfaction - especially when it comes with details like foldable wings and poseable landing gear. Launch your child into imaginative and innovative building with the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet.
* Includes: 283 Parts, 2 Real Tools, 1 Instruction Sheet for 1 Model
Bought this for my husband who loves the Blue Angels. It makes a cool looking jet; however, I was disappointed that the parts are plastic. Details read "composed of real metal parts" and the box says "real metal"; plastic parts are not even mentioned. Screws, hinges and brackets are metal in this kit, but all body parts of the jet (the blue and yellow pieces) are all plastic. This should be included in the details/description.
