I'm of two minds about this kit. Normally I despise snap-together kits, but this snaps together quite well, leaving few gaps in the model.
I think the biggest chore in assembly was the meticulous trimming the parts required. You will need a good, sharp pair of part nippers to trim off the sprue stubs. For many parts, it's a two-cut process to trim the part.
Overall, the lighting works well, except in the nacelles. The fore ends are notably brighter than the aft end.

If money's no object, get one; otherwise grab one of the $20 Art Asylum toys.
