1. The detail is truly astonishing. Even on little areas you wouldn't think they would spend much time on.
2. It's challenging... For those of us who enjoy a challenge that's a good thing.
3. It's not an overwhelmingly long project. Mine took 4 hours because of a malfunction, but even that is not especially long.
1. You definitely need tools. They don't really tell you that. I started mine fairly late at night, so I wasn't able to run and get needle-nose pliers. I managed fairly well with a pair of tweezers for twisting the tiny (and I mean tiny) tabs; regular scissors to push tabs firmly down; the clip of a pen cap to help curl flat pieces. His head looks like he was in an accident, because there's no easy way to curve that piece.
2. Don't make mistakes. Because most of the pieces will only hold up to being bent one way, one time. I bent a part the wrong way, and it was unfortunately one of the "perforated" pieces. When I bent it the correct way, the parts snapped completely off. There were no spares for that piece, so I ended up having to super-glue part of R2D2's leg together. Hopefully he wasn't planning on dancing.
3. Work on a surface that doesn't hide teeny pieces of metal. Patterned counters are not your friend.
4. If you have large hands, you're SOL. I usually hate how small my hands are, but it worked in my favor this time! The pieces are tiny, and you need to be able to carefully maneuver them.
5. The directions aren't super clear. I did fine for most of it (with the noted exception), but it helps to have some spatial recognition.., they aren't always clear on what direction things go.
In all I enjoyed most of it. I like the end result (I'd love him more without the smashed-in skull and gimpy leg). But it was way more frustrating than I had anticipated. I'm very glad I opted not to include my daughter in the festivities, or she might have learned some colorful new words.
At the end of the day, even if this was to be completed (without breaking a single piece, which, good luck with that...), the thing looked stupid, was poorly engineered, was teeny tiny, everything was 'loose' to the touch; And most likely would have quickly found itself in the trash, unworthy of addition to my collections of knick knacks.
DO NOT BUY THIS. DO NOT BUY THIS FOR SOMEONE ELSE. THIS IS A HORRIBLE LITTLE THING.
Two other invaluable tools are these:
Beadalon Slim Bent Chain Nose Pliers for Jewelry Making
Hakko CHP-170 Micro Soft Wire Cutter, 1.5mm Stand-off, Flush Cut, 2.5mm Hardened Carbon Steel Construction, 21-Degree Angled Jaw, 8mm Jaw Length, 16 Gauge Maximum Cutting Capacity
The wire cutters are ideal for clipping the parts from the metal sheets and the needle nose pliers are just about the perfect size to do most of the twists on the tabs. I also use a small 1/4" thick piece of plywood cut into a right triangle. That helps me with tabs that need bent as it sort of grabs onto the tabs and helps get them bending in the right direction. Also if it slips while trying to push the tabs it won't scratch the surface of parts like something metal would.
If anyone wants to know how I do anything else on these models just please ask.
