For those who have built Aster kits before, the new kits are identical to the old. Same instructions, same way of packaging parts etc.

For those who want to build a kit for the first time, this is a very satisfying project to build. All parts are finished, painted, holes drilled and tapped, so it is just a matter of assembly. Having said that, you will need around 30-40 hours of work, carefully making sure the part fits nicely, mechanisms are free etc. You'll need some modelers tools such as small metric wrenches, drivers, tweezers and the like. Assembly is done page by page in the drawings book which has clear isometric views of the parts being assembled, the parts needed for each page are all in one packet. Many people (myself included) do one page per evening, and you can see your engine steadily grow day by day. I have made around 50 Aster loco kits and can give you experienced advice as you assemble your kit.
