My lad has been waiting for .. what seemed to him like forever…until we could build this lovely kit that came our way via Raincoast Books. Little did he know I had an agenda.
First… work through his Apologia Astronomy book and read through the book on Pluto. Now admittedly he’s not completely done with the apologia study (but he’s close), but he’s got a cold, it’s a blah rainy day and I thought.. why not today! So that’s what we did. 🙂 We opened up the kit Star Wars Builders Millennium Falcon. Oh my, did the lad have fun!
This kit comes as a complete unit, a box attached to a book.
A clear direction sheet that has instructions on both sides. One to show the numbering, the other to show how to put it all together.
The book is a nice one with good quality paper and full colour pictures throughout. The text appeals to a variety of ages. 64 pages of good information for the Star Wars fan.
The build is made of cardstock that is very thick and sturdy. It has layers in it, but they are held together well and do not separate when putting it together. One piece buckled a little when being bent to form the curved lines…but that was more a learning how much pressure needed to be applied. It did not affect the integrity of the finished product.
An easy to put together 3-D puzzle. Follow the instructions or it won’t go together well.

can’t say the box is very sturdy as it came to us ripped although it
was in secure packaging and taped closed. None of the pieces were damaged as they were
tightly packed, a good bit away from any damage to the box. So I can’t say the damage was really worth anything, just spoiled the initial look of the kit is all it did.
