    I would like to get a Tamiya TamTech Lamborghini Countach LP500s kit to build with my 11 year old son as an itroduction to cars, modelling RC etc.

    The trouble is I have recently become disabled and have lost virtually all manual dexterity and whist I could help him work out what to do he would have to do all physical construction.

    Do you think this would be suitable and if not can you reccomend something.
