Aoshima has joined the companies producing 'egg'citing subjects and here's one of their first, hot off the production line. This is the Lady Penelope's FAB-1 in an egg-shape but retaining many of the features found in Aoshima's regular FAB-1 release.
This set is molded in pink, black, and chromed styrene and is a snap-assembly kit. This means that the kit is ideal for young modelers as well as us older modelers that have short attention spans. The kit has caricature upper torsos for Lady Penelope and her butler/driver Parker.
If you're a fan of the old Thunderbirds series, this is one you'll want to have for your desk or shelf (but you're going to have to get it past your kid first).
My sincere thanks to Dragon Models USA for this review sample!
