This is my daughter Kate's Heller Bentley. She's now turned 13, and this is her fourth car kit -- and although this has been on the workbench for a long while, I think she can be very proud of it!

As you can see... she's pretty pleased!

all the best,
Matt

She did a fantastic job on that kit. It very much reminds me of the days my daughter built some models with me.

Wow. 13 and she put together a HELLER kit? Looks great, too. Nice work!

I have a 9 year old daughter and she builds periodically - she's working on the Beatle's Yellow Submarine currently.
