Summary: I was a Bionicle collector up from the dawn of the toy line until the end of it until 2010. This was about as close as I got to any Technic sets, until now. I bought this Cargo Plane last week (along with a few other sets) as I had finished my LOTR/Hobbit collection and decided to move into a new line of sets and I figured TECHNIC would be the way to go.
Summary: At long last - a Technic model which has white as a theme colour! I've been waiting for this for a long time - the only recent model with a substantial amount of white elements was the Grand Prix Racer, which only had around 80, compared to this beast's 250 white peices. Seeing white is a pretty uncommon and sought-after colour in the Technic world, this model is a definite collector's item.
Summary: A fun build. The model is very solid when completed and the both the manual and electric functions are great fun. The build itself is challenging, although not difficult. Unfortunately, I liked the final product so much, I had to purchase the set again to build the hovercraft !
