Yesterday I was looking at a model ship on Amazon.com, thinking about a possible birthday gift for David the ten-year-old (who will be eleven this summer). Some stats on the beauty I was considering:
– 159 detailed parts
– Requires paint and glue (not included)
– Previous modeling experience recommended
That all seems pretty intense, I know, but here’s the kicker:
– Assembly time: 10 minutes.
No wonder previous modeling experience is recommended, if you’re supposed to have 159 parts painted and glued in 10 minutes! Some of the reviewers (who claimed previous modeling experience) reported taking two months and more to finish.
