Hasegawa's Egg Plane Series is a fun and easy to build line of aircraft kits that kids of all ages will enjoy! They are also great if you find yourself just wanting to do a fun, quick build! The fit is great and most of these kits can be built in a very short amount of time.

My sincere thanks to Hasegawa USA for this review sample!
