They make great gifts for the model-makers in the family and once done they’ve got themselves a nice little safe to put things in. Once they’ve figured out how to open the puzzle box that is!
Recommended for about age 14+ the Silver City versions have 144 parts so you can see that the assembly of the box is quite a project in itself.
