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.

What a beauty... And the model came out great too! Seriously, I hope you stick with the hobby, Kate. You clearly have a talent for it. The actual car that your Bentley model was based on was a very successful racing car back when it was running. As I recall, an identical car won the 24 Hours Of LeMans in 1928 and finished second in 1929.
