The finished model stands about 12cm tall and is about 20cm wide across the wing span. If you're going to decorate the model it would probably be easier to paint it before you put the pieces together and you'll find some painting tips at the back of the book if you want to make your model look like the original Buckbeak. I was happy to leave mine undecorated though and it's still a really nice looking model.
The hardback book it comes with is only about 30 pages long but it includes lots of fun facts about Hippogriffs in general and Buckbeak in particular. You'll find stills from the movie, pictures of the life sized models they created, quotes from the books and information on exactly how they brought Buckbeak to life including 3 different full sized models and a lot of CGI. It's not a long read but it was interesting to see how much effort went into creating just one character who doesn't even have a major role in the story really. They wanted to create a fantastical creature that was as real to life as possible and studied both birds and horses to help them work out how Buckbeak would move.
I love these sets, they're brilliant for any Harry Potter fans who will enjoy the information included in the book and love having a finished model to display on their bookshelves. I plan to collect them all eventually!
