Verified Purchase
Despite (or maybe because of) this being a later product, this was the first model kit and magazine I purchased. Having not done any model-making in some time, I thought this would be a nice challenge. I'm happy to say it took only a couple of hours, though likely much less for those without the added distractions of multiple cats and YouTube.

It's a funny little toy to play with when you get bored, sitting at a desk (maybe doing some homework), and definitely a nice little project to get an otherwise disaffected mind to do a bit of problem solving.

It should be noted that I later purchased the older (2010) Animaris Ordis Parvus kit from vol. 30 of Gakken and noticed some distinctly lacking manufacturing details. Some parts of my Animaris kit were not even completely formed before being shipped out, and it did not come with the magazine. That's what you get for $20 less, I suppose.

If you are going to buy one of the two kits, I would heartily recommend this one. Despite being smaller, it is actually much more of a challenge as compared to the Animaris, as the Animaris is mostly repeated structures. Build one leg, and you've pretty much built the whole thing, essentially... Not exactly a brain bender.

At the same time, maybe the much simpler Animaris WOULD be the better one to start with, just to get used to the way the parts are designed to fit together. A lot of the assembly tricks are the same between the models.
