This kit makes a great introduction to MiniArt kits. Like most MiniArt kits, this one is highly detailed and beautifully molded. Modelers should know, however, that the parts, both plastic and PE included with this kit are small, with some of them being downright tiny-- tweezers are a must, and for old eyes like my, magnification is useful. Experience is a must with this kit, as is patience. Parts fit is good, but each assembly must be allowed time for the glue to completely set up before moving to the next step. If one uses care during the assembly of this kit, one will be rewarded with a beautifully detailed 1/35 scale crane that can be used on a vehicle or in a diorama.
