This is a pure LEGO set. I am in awe of the versatility offered in one box.
The design of the plane is simply amazing and when you are done putting it together you realize how clever the design engineering is (the rear cockpit slides to open, the propeller will move when you push the rear wheel). The best thing about the plane model is that it will also fit your LEGO mini figures, a feature not always seen in the creator line. Bottom line, buy this set sort the pieces and pick which model you are going to build (boat, helicopter or plane). once you get board with that one you can make the other model and then the next. Finally, forget the instructions and let your imagination take over. Some of the pieces in this set are pieces I have never seen before. Forget the themed sets, this is the set for pure LEGO fans.
