Snap Together Model Lockheed F-14 Tomcat
NewRay Pilot model kits are model kits that do not need glue. These models come as disassembled toys/models. The major assemblies are kept together by screws; usually 4 to 6 are enough. Some minor parts such as the vertical stabilizer (vertical fin) are snap fit. They are pre-painted so they are ready to be displayed or played with right after assembly, which would usually take about 5 to 7 minutes. However, with a little bit of paint/permanent marker, one can greatly enhance the look of these models. All in all it would be a great gift to an 8 year old or a "low cost practice platform" for model builders trying to improve their painting/weathering/detailing techniques.
