60019 Stunt Plane micro review (oh, and an eBay link!)

I've had this set built for a while now so I thought it would be a good idea to finally do a little review of it!
  You get 140 pieces for 9.99 GBP / 19.99 US$ which makes it good value for money. Two minifigures - the pilot and a support crew person. As far as I'm aware there are no new pieces but the pilot's torso has a new design which is used in this set and 60027 Monster Truck transporter. (That set is on my wants list!)
  The support truck is basically a toolbox on wheels, everything to fix or maintain the plane is there. However the poor driver has to stand up to operate it, no seats! Small, simple and a very straightforward build, there are no surprises with this vehicle!

Lots of tools, ear protectors and, probably, aching legs!
The plane itself is quite a nice design, the big engine air intake and wheel cowlings give it a suitably sporty look. Apart from the wheels and propeller, the cockpit canopy is the only moving part. Nice to build but a lot of stickers, some which have to be applied on curved surfaces making it slightly trickier to get level and look like they should. That's only a minor grumble. 

Ready for inverse loops, stall turns, flat spins and a sick bag!
   For some reason Lego are marketing it as part of the City 'Freight' range. A nice little addition to an airport or sporty scene.

  I have now listed the first three small sets from my sons collection on eBay, if you're interested, my eBay page is here! Just look for them among all the books, comics, clothes etc!

    1. Hi Giac! It's a good sturdy design which helps when a 9-year-old gets hold of it! Kind regards, Brian.
