Revell Junior "Jeep" Model Kit

Offroad Vehicle

 

Revell has come out with a new series of snap kits for youngsters. While snap kits are nothing new, I noticed the box said for ages 4+ and up. A model a 4-year old can build? I wanted to check this out a little closer and see what the model actually consisted of.

When the box arrived, I was surprised at the large size It's nearly twice the size of a standard car model box, but a slight bit thinner. Once I opened the box, out came the kit, and I was again surprised at the size of the body. While there's no scale on the box, this body looks to be around 1/20, maybe even 1/16 ? Even the price, which was quite low, didn't prepare me for this large scale kit. (In the photographed image I took, I used a tube of Testors model glue as reference so you can judge the size of the body, though glue is not needed to build it).

The body is molded in color, in this case, a medium orange. This particular kit is called their "Off Road Vehicle". I'm sure you noticed it resembles a JK Wrangler Jeep, or possibly a Troller T4 or Mahindra Thar. I'm thinking Revell went with a hybrid sort of look, which gives it a more International appeal. Not that a 4 year old would care. The rest of the body is molded in black, with silver-grey wheels. I especilayy like the idea that the hardtop is a separate part.

You might even be able to squeeze some toy figures in the vehicle. The tires are hollow rubber parts, (rather than hard plastic), and you even get a spare for the rear! The unique part of this series of model kits from Revell is the tool. (noted with an arrow in the photo). The model is held together with large plastic "screws" (molded in orange, shown in the small plastic bag). Some of the parts click together like a regular snap model. The model includes some string to wrap around the front winch, and attaches to the included hook. Stickers are provided to dress up the kit.

Could a 4 year old build this? I think so. I think a child would enjoy screwing the parts together with the tool and understanding how that process works. The snap parts might need a little help from an adult (such as the windshield) to pop them in. But then, that's one of the fun things about snap kits is doing them as a family project, or for some quality father and son time. (mother and daughter time). I think Revell has a clear winner on it's hand with these kits.

Revell also has a mini-site for these models, where you can download the instructions, and see a video.
