Revell’s new SnapTite Pelican… built

September 14th, 2017
Revell has kicked off a new line of Combat-Ready Vehicle Model Kids, and they were kind enough to send along the UNSC Pelican. I don't even want to TELL you how many decades it's been since I put together a model... but I can guarantee you it's never been this easy. I'm pretty incompetent, and it still took only 20 minutes. Check out the timelapse below! They're currently selling a Warthog, a Wraith, and a Scorpion, in addition to this Pelican. Batteries are included!
