Build & Play Kits Revell Revell have a well-established Build & Play range, and we’ve reviewed a raft of their Star Wars offerings in the past. They have a range of starter kits that have been released under different banners over the years, and have now been re-released under the Build & Play banner. We’ve got four of them in for review, and although they’re not strictly speaking model kits to our understanding, they’re a great introduction to the world of modelling, and come in resealable foil bags with two sprues of styrene, a clear canopy part, some stickers and an instruction booklet. They snap together using friction-fit turrets and tubes, but if you’re called in to help with the build a bit of liquid glue would ensure they’ll stay put during rough play. Eurofighter (06452) 1:100 This little model is supplied in grey styrene, and consists of 21 grey parts and the canopy. The landing gear all rotates in and out of the fuselage for landings and take off and the stickers are of the colourful 100 year anniversary scheme worn by ZK343 of 29th Squadron. Tornado (06451) 1:100 Containing 19 parts in grey styrene plus the clear canopy, this kit also has moving landing gear and sweeping wings. The stickers have a black tail with a tiger motif with the code 44+87 of the German air force. Apache (06453) 1:100 With 26 parts in green styrene, plus a clear canopy, the stickers represent a Netherlands machine with a shark mouth on the nose and an Native American bust on the tail. Tomcat (06450) 1:100 With 23 parts in grey plus a clear canopy, and stickers from the hi-viz days of the Jolly Rogers. As usual the landing gear rotates, and so do the wings on this variable geometry fighter. Conclusion These kits are squarely aimed at young beginner modellers or kids that just want to play, and won’t be even slightly concerned about the simplicity of the models or the unrealistic landing gear etc. Given how much fun my son has with this type of thing, it won’t matter a jot to the target audience as long as they can use their imagination and have a good time playing. Highly recommended. Revell model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers. For further information visit or
Hello All, I normally do not venture into the briny side of modelling but made an exception as a 'no pressure try out some more weathering techniques" build. The kit appealed as It is a rapid build snap together kit that has very good fit and engineering. Anyway it was fun to do as something very different for me. Thanks for looking, Happy Modelling, oh by the way, some exceptional stuff here on this thread..... Might have to have a bit of a further go these briny things. Ian
This is the little Meng Kids kit. It's a snap-together model in black and brown plastic. I chose to paint it using Tamiya acrylics, free-handing the camo. The decals are stickers, but of high quality. It's a great fun build in the same genre as the egg-planes.
