The die cut on most of the parts do not line up quite right, in fact some of the cuts were so close to the perimeter of the page that parts of the printed graphics and some tabs would be missing when the part is punched out. Not very clear instructions on how the models go together, just some very basic drawings showing the relationship between each part in an exploded diagram. Luckily I have some experience with paper models so they make sense to me. Someone not familiar with paper models would most likely have trouble.
Young readers/builders may like this.
Some may think this is to complicated and vice versa.
Make copies of the pages for practice before you do your final models.
Is not that difficult.
The same apply for the companion book the "Paper Pilot"
