Review:
I really love making these Incredibuilds models and the Hogwarts Express is the most detailed model yet in the Harry Potter series. It has over 140 pieces and a lot of them are quite small so you have to be careful pushing them out of the boards but all of these models are pretty easy to put together as long as you follow the instructions and only take out one piece at a time as you're ready for them.

The finished model looks great, the train has moving wheels and a detachable carriage. They've also printed a lot of detail on the pieces so even unpainted it looks great. All of these model kits come with a booklet but they're only about 30 pages long so don't buy these kits expecting to spend much time reading. This booklet did have lots of fun facts about the Hogwarts Express, including the actual train from the movies that was pretty much nothing but scrap metal before it was restored for the series.

These kits are perfect gifts for Harry Potter fans, you get the fun of making them and then you get a cute little model to display on your bookcase afterwards.
