Build a detailed replica of the Navy's elite aircraft carrier, the USS Kitty Hawk, with this 1700-pc. model kit. From the Mega Bloks Pro-Builder Collector Series, it's 3' long when completed. It has a number of realistic features, including eight scale-model F-14 jets, rotating radar, moveable gun stations, jet-blast deflectors and real working flight deck elevators. Comes with a detailed instruction booklet. Ages 7 and up. Imported.
Put together a mere 1,700 pieces in the right order, stick on a page or three of decals, and you're the proud owner of a 3-foot model depicting the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kittyhawk. The detailed, wordless instructions run to 56 pages. Eight one-piece F-14 jets are included to adorn the flight deck. Finished? Not quite. Without telling you how to make them, the instructions also tantalizingly illustrate both an oil tanker and a cruiser that you can make from the same parts. --Richard Farr
