This Star Wars build-a-scene kit is perfect for the Star Wars fan in your life. My lad is an avid paper crafter and was quite delighted when this kit made it’s way into our home.
Three builds are included in this kit:
- Episode III Revenge of the Sith
- Episode IV A New Hope
- Episode VII The Force Awakens
Each build in the book is predicated by a write up of what the build is about and how it was filmed. Pictures from the movie are included, as well as concept scenes making this a well-rounded kit. Not just a build but an informational kit. Once this informational write up (about 5 pages) is completed you are given a list of supplies. Common items like glue, paint brush, etc are listed, as well as instruction on how to do the build. Mountain and valley folds, gluing and letting dry, and so forth. The creators want you to be successful in doing the build, so take your time and read through all the instructions before starting.
You will find that the sheets are perforated well on a thicker paper, but not board paper thick. Just a nice quality paper for doing papercraft builds. The individual pieces are well numbered.
Take your time, carefully build, read and re-read the instructions as needed, and you can complete these three scenes. I’d say this kit is better for the older teen to adult builder as it is fiddly and you need the patience to take your time doing the build.My Thoughts:
Honestly.. we tried.. well.. my son tried! I started, ran into problems, he tried hard to fix my oops, and well… he lost heart. This is not a build for the inexperienced. My son is an avid paper crafter and knows how to work with glue and paper really well .. but my mess up just brought him to a stall. Unwilling he was to try another build, partially because he didn’t want to make me feel bad, but trying to fix my oops just disheartened him. Adult builders.. take heart though. if you are a good paper crafter and have the requisite patience, this kit will work really well for you. It’s a great kit, and being able to build what you’ve seen on the big screen is wonderful.
