My daughter and I love to build these wooden model kits together. I (the mom) find it exciting. I'm interested and engaged. My daughter seems to pick up on my excitement. Then she's engaged!

Do you glue this together? Or can you take it apart and put it back together over and over?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The instructions call for glue to be used to hold some pieces together, and it seemed to run better when we'd glued it. In theory, though, you might be able to skip the gluing at least for a while and it might work alright--I just wouldn't count on that and would purchase something different if you want to have that flexibility.

Great project
Got this for my teenage son - loves hands-on engineering projects. Enjoyed building it the day after Christmas. Didn’t take too long, just long enough to keep his interest. Very happy with this purchase!
