These look great, thanks - are they cardboard or plastic and has anyone seen the end result? I'm wondering if they are suitable for a 10 year old and are worthwhile?

Thanks

Mmmm I honestly have no idea...actually have just had a "poke" around on-line to see if I could find out and according to the product details on Amazon the materials they are made out of and recommended minimum age for each kit is as follows:

Hovercraft: Plastic Age 6+
Space Shuttle: Foam - The model comes with 6 puzzle sheets containing 60 model pieces. Age 8+
Shark: Foam - The model comes with 6 puzzle sheets containing 24 model pieces. Age 3+
Dragster: Plastic - 8 x dragster chassis panels, 2 x axles, 8 x different sized wheels, 18 x different sized rubber bands Age 3+

From reading about them in more depth would say that the Space Shuttle one seems to be the most complex out of all of them and the rest may be a bit "simplistic for a 10 year old but guess it depends on whether your 10 year old would be interested and how long for for that matter!!!! And it also has to be said that some of the kits appear to be better than others....

So sorry I can't be of more help and that I can't give you any details of what they look like when built as haven't seen them in "real-life" so to speak but perhaps someone else will be able to help you....
