Very few people who start buying part works go the distance. There was recently one which let you build a radio controlled model of the Bismark, the total cost would have been nearly £800. As said, going to a model shop is much cheaper.

Making models is an enjoyable pastime, even better if you can fly/sail/drive what you make. If model-making interest you, find a good local model-shop and start from there,they're usually run by enthusiasts who will hopefully get you started on something worthwhile for a lot less cash than the Flying Scotsman.

Airfix are still great. Me and my 8 year-old lad have done a few (Spitfire, Hurricane, Messershmit and WIP a Sunderland flying boat), my daughter also did a Ford Focus rally car. Good honest interactive fun with the kids and not a TV/Monitor screen in sight.

Revell also do a range of high quality snap-together kits which are brilliant for kids, not only aircraft and stuff but Star-Wars as well, no glue, lots of colour and detail. Keeps 'em amused for hours!
