  • Model airplane by subscription

    [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHTWPqvHGNI[/media]

    It'll cost you about $1500 to build, but it's made palatable in a novel way: Each week, you get a small set of parts for $15, and it takes about 100 sets to complete the model.

    wow I enjoy a good model but most mine are like skill level 2 and 3 lol. And only cost about 20 bucks. The detail is insane.

      There has been a similar kit for a Lancaster bomber advertised on British TV lately. It looks really great, the only drawback being it takes 124 issues at a price of 4.99 each, a total cost of 619.26

      The detail of these things are insane, but I think I'll stick to the Air-fix models for the moment. :)

      Here's the link for the above:

        Pffft,

        That's nothing compared to a Van's RV-10 ;).

        12,000 Rivets, Pro seal, some imagination, and about 115k USD.

        ^^

        That's a pretty neat toy though
