SUMMARY- I would have had a blast with this one when I was a kid. The models are relatively simple compared to many many models I've seen, but not so simple you have a hard time recognizing what the model is supposed to be when it's done. Their butterfly, for instance, is very nicely done, with the upper and lower wings differentiated, but still simple enough for a novice to successfully fold. There are nicely done details like that that throughout.
