Note that the huge number of parts allows multiple copies to be built of many models, so that a group of 4 students can be building 2 models simultaneously, if desired. Please note that, for customers in Europe, the set is supplied in a robust blue storage tub. For customers outside Europe, the set is supplied without a storage tub, which significantly reduces the shipping cost.
