Mal, I would start him off with one of AMT's classic, wire axle type kits. Simple in construction but looks right when done, it's what I started on and it's still one of, if not the, favorite style kit of mine to work on.

If you have Wal-marts down there, don't know, they usually have some prepainted for cheap. Problem is, sometimes the chassis/interior parts are warped because they are wrapped with tape so tightly! Not all though.

Good luck to both of you! :)

Revell '32 Ford. One of the sweetest building kits out there, fit really well, and looks great right out of the box.

Hey dude, the Revell Integra's/Civics are a blast to build. The AMT Eclipse isn't as much.
