Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun My two year old was starting to show an interest in planes and I have an interest in technic so why not get this set. It turns out that my son loved the set more than I expected. He loves that the prop turns with pushing the plane on the ground. Then he loves dropping the lego water bricks as well as flipping open the lid to refil. The control stick is beyond him at the moment, but I appreciate it. All in all more replay value than I was expecting. A fun model with some interesting building techniques.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The FIRE PLANE! One of my random builds and my second official airplane set from Lego Technic, it is a cool set, the build is pretty straightforward with clear instructions meaning you won't get to interchange black and grey parts somewhere in the build. The stickers that now come almost mandatory to every Technic set doesn't feel cheap, they have a high quality finish and these stickers are the also thick. Being a secondary set to the 42025 Cargo Plane this 42040 Fire Plane comes with 2 neat functions, the drop function for taking out fires with simulated "water" bricks (8 of the clear blue rounded bricks) and the rotor/boxer engine tandem. You roll the wheels and that boxer engine propels the the propeller but not for long because this set is one of those ""purely" technic sets, not power functions or hydraulics just old-fashioned hand operation of the mechanical function. It's not boring actually it's like an introduction at how things work and can present one with the idea of what I can use that approach to one of my builds? The set has an ascending attitude on it probably because it's a water-based aircraft so each time you rolls it, it gives that feel that the plane is taking of the water and ready to drop of water wherever there is a fire. Overall shape of the set is realistic as with most Technic sets but having owned only 1 airplane set prior to this set might explain why I like this set so much, you should get one and let your inner fireman fly to your dreams. I don't like the gaps in the set so did some sections and I also don't like the 3-blade design so I added another 3 blades and it looks even better! Those are my only complaints on this set. Having watched Pixar's Planes, this set reminds me of Dusty Crophopper from that film, could it be that Lego's designers took inspiration from that film? That would be very cool but the set is already cool, so go watch Planes and Planes Fire and Rescue while playing this and that kid in you will want to fly it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lego Technic Fire The model looks good completed and is nice to have the moving components making it a little bit more interesting. This was my 9 year old sons first Lego Technics build which he managed with a little help. It was challenging for him but within his capabilities and not too difficult. great instructions, love that this can be either the fire plane or jet. Good all round model and good value for money.
