Rie: And you don't know anything about mollusks, or carnivorous plants, or honey pots? You know, that toy that used to be made by the same company that now makes the Star Wars themed DIY design kits?Both boxes contain the same parts and extras, nothing left to chance there. What was fairly obvious when building this set is that there is limited quality control on the molding and printing equipment.Most parts go easily on and stick decently, but some have slight disfigurements that make them hard to apply. There are no big problems with building and it can be completed in a fairly straight forward manner, but at some points I had to wonder: "Would any kid under 16 have the finger strength to get everything on? I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of it, but on one of the sides the "Police" print was set too far to the left, making it an "olice" helicopter on that side.Sluban did its best to resemble the genuine booklets, with a small block indicating the parts to be used in a step, displayed next to the actual layer of parts to be added in vibrant colours, on top the faded colours of the previous step: That said, I did also enjoy the KAZI and the Enlighten booklets.They employ a similar tactic of using the blocks next to each step to show how a portion of that step should be built.Whether it's the wheel of the ship, or just how a few block should be arranged.
Because the KAZI and Enlighten use a similar tactic, I choose to save a little space by only showing the marginally better Enlighten booklet: Building the kits turned out to be very easy for a 30 year old adult with Technical education. So I decided to keep an eye on the brick finish and quality along the way, as well as test their proper compatibility with the original branded stuff.I would, however, not advise it on account of increased risk of wear and tear on either side. The first thing that caught my eye about the set was the great finish of the parts, things looked familiar, smooth and reusable.
