Reviews.

"What a great set! Solid, large and includes many great features. I had looked at the brickmania version, but the high price and grey colour had shied me away from it. The Cobi set was the right colour, and even more importantly, the right price!

"The build is a straight forward process, with clear and easy to follow instructions making assembly an easy task. Once assembled, the model is strikingly large. You read the 17-inch length on the box, but it really hits you when you attach the tail boom subassembly.

"I modified my Huey to be a gunship, with the rocket pods and twin 50 calls. The set took the mods well, with only an afternoon required to complete them. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the set will fit MegaConstrux figures, with some careful contortions of course. Overall a great set, highly recommended!" ~ Ryan E
