Review - Airport 3182

Post by Free Spirit on Fri 12 Feb 2010, 10:55 am

I will start this topic by reviewing the cargo truck which is ready to be essembled in the first bag upon opening the box.

The first part of the vehicle is made up of a few fiddly bits which include all five of the mini figures, a combined fuel can and lamp, two latterns and two stickers on the side of the vehicle, it should take most of you about 15 to 20 minutes to piece it together.

It gets easier after that with the trailer which should take about 10 minutes to build with the only obstacle or real challenge being two more stickers to place on side of this part of the vehicle similar to the first one.

The last part of the vehicle being a staircase on wheels should take five minutes to build which finishes it off nicely.

I personally think that the combination of yellow and black as the colour scheme of this vehicle is a good choice as it presents itself very well however I feel that an Airport minifigure behind the wheel should have been considered instead of a construction site worker.

All in all, it is a pretty good start to a great bargain.

The second conponent of the Airport is the Passenger Plane which takes approximately one and a half to two hours to build give or take how quickly all of the stickers are applied to each part.

Building starts off with the construction of the lower section of the cabin and cockpit which thankfully has only one sticker to be applied which I found to be a bonus.

Once completion of the lower section is finished the wings are applied which have a good span of forty five centimetres inclusive of the cabin.
Expect five stickers to be placed on the wings which give the plane a realistic look and add detail.

Proceeding straight after the wings is the upper section whereby several windows,a retractable door, roofing and the cockpit are applied along with quite a few stickers which should take most people about forty five minutes to an hour to piece together.

The last few things to piece together are the engines to both wings and the three sets of wheels which I found very easy to do because of its straightforwardness so that wraps up this part of the review.

One thing I would like to see in the future is an enclosed staircase that drops from the back of the Passenger Plane thus creating two sections.
At the front should be business class followed by the normal everyday passenger class which we often refer to as economy class.
