This C-180 is 10.5" long. It requires very little assembly and includes a display stand. It is prepainted and prebuilt. The plane is generously sized with 1:130 scale and is officially licensed. Sky Kids models are designed for kids 8 and up. They are intended as display models for kids who would like to begin a collection. They are really not for rough play.
Encouraging your child to build a collection is not about consumerism, but more about valuing a special treasure and gradually acquiring others that are special too. Caring for the collection truly benefits kids if they are passionate about their subject.They learn to take care of something, keeping it clean and orderly. Organizational skills are called upon to keep the collection arranged, perhaps by color or style. Kids develop a sense of pride in their collection and can begin to learn research skills and gain an idea of historical context.
