Star Wars R2-D2 Master Models Building KitMy husband is a huge Star Wars fan and collector. He’s been collecting items related to the movie since the mid 1980’s. He has seen all of the movies (at least 100 times) and owns over 2,000 items in his personal collection. When you walk into his man cave, that’s all you see!

For this review feature we received the Master Models Star Wars R2-D2 Paper Model Kit. As a big fan of the Star Wars genre, hubby was really excited to get this paper building kit into his hands.

ISBN: 978-0-7603-5505-3
Approx. Build Time: 15-20 Hours
Ages: 14 years and up

The entire kit comes packaged in what looks-like an over-sized book. You open up the flap and inside you’ll find the paper model pieces, instruction booklet and the paperback Star Wars R2-D2 Galactic Hero Book by Benjamin Harper.

My husband read through the instructions and then got busy popping out the paper pieces. He found it easier to pop out just the one’s that he needed as he went along in building the model. He also opted to use a glue stick (the kind that’s made for paper and for scrapbooking) as it really holds together the paper pieces nicely.

Overall, it took my husband about 2 1/2 weeks to fully build his new Star Wars R2-D2 Model and he’s really happy with how it turned out! He will be displaying it on the bar down in his man cave in our basement. Fabulous project!

    Star Wars fans will love this. They not only have a book to read, but can build their own R2-D2 model.

  2. My son, who is married with 3 children, would love this. He has been collecting Star Wars since he was 8 years old. He has a lot of the original items that came out with the first movie.

    You know I would have never guessed that it was paper! I saw the post on facebook and recalled your hubby liked to do he models.This one is really cute. Is he still doing the other models? Some were so neat and intricate!

    • Yup, he’s still building those mini metal models too. This paper model kit so far is his favorite. That R2-D2 stands over a foot tall. It’s not mini in size at all. He now wants to get some of the foot tall ship models to do.
