Model car kits are something I've been doing since I was a kid! It's tedious and meticulous, but I find it super relaxing. Plus, the pay off is great!
With the hard work, focus, and attention I put into one of the model cars I'm working on, I get such a cool finished product. Plus, I did it! I love working with my hands, so this has always been such a perfect hobby for me. It's great as a solo activity (my preference) or even with kids or friends.

I still look up model ship kits to build even though it's been years since my Grandfather passed away and even longer since we had built one together. It seems like nothing has really changed in that department.
Who doesn't love to look at a beautifully crafted model ship? They're intricate and artful and you can tell they required a lot of detailed work and craftsmanship. My dad used to take me to scale model conventions.
Honestly, this one is so gray and cumbersome I can't see most kids being excited to have it, much less build it. The size and little plaque under it give me the impression this is most certainly more for adults than for kids. I don't see myself buying this for a niece or nephew.
