    D419 Showmans Engine Kit

    This would have had 5 stars if it weren't for the sometimes very vague instructions but overal the kit is brilliant and my child has had HOURS of fun both building it and running it. The lights do a fantastic job of illuminating the brass work when it starts getting darker. The ONLY gripe I'd have is the quality of the light rails, they're somewhat flimsy BUT it's nothing that a good "Dob" of araldite cannot cure. All in all though, a brilliant little (not so at over 12")machine giving hours of fun..
