What could possibly go wrong?
Although you're pretty much just punching out parts and putting them in the right places, all model building requires skill. If you're not careful, you could damage the parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. As with any skill, the more practice and experience you have, the better the result. Take your time and enjoy the experience.
What is the recommended minimum age to build the biplane?
8 - however at this age you might need to step in occasionally to help out. All kids are different of course, but we're going to say that an average 10 year old could most likely build it independently.
What is the recommended maximum age to build the biplane?
If you have steady hands and patience then the only thing left to stop you is your eyesight.
Does the solar cell require any soldering?
No. It comes pre-wired so all you need to do is place it into position.
Do any of the parts need to be glued?
No. The parts are laser cut and fit snuggly together.
Do any parts move?
Yes. The solar cell powers a motor that rotates the propellor.
Is the model fragile?
It's unlikely to get damaged if it topples over, but if it is dropped from a height then be prepared for disappointment.
Do I need to sand the parts?
The parts can be slightly rough on the edges so we recommend that you give them a light sanding. If you don't bother then it's unlikely to cause you any grief.
Is it pre-painted?
The parts are pre-coloured. No painting is required.
