I bought one of the polar lights kits over the winter for myself. But when it showed up my daughter loved the pre-painted pearl white finish and she wanted it . She had never built a model before,, but had spent some time watching me. So I let her have it on the conditions she had to build it on her own.
There is no extra paint work and/or extra details. Just straight out of the box with a left over set of decals i've had for years and never used. My only contribution was helping with positioning the 2nd layer of decals (it's a fred cady decal sheet) And even at that it was limited to the 'Ramchargers' lettering only
We had planed for months to attend the local model show so she could enter it . But on the day of the show she got sick and had to stay home. So I took it and entered it on her behalf.
Needless to say it made my day when they called her name as the class winner.
And shes already on to the next one , a snap kit of the 1966 Batmobile. she picked that one out after seeing it on the shelf at Hobby Lobby. So I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.
She'll be 13 in 2 weeks
