PIECECOOL BLACK DRAGON REVIEW

Piececool is a metal hobby brand which we would describe as being a bit like a cross between origami and traditional hobby kit making.

The products come in a sleek package, with multiple flat metallic sheets inside, and from this you can create awesomely detailed models of a wide variety of objects. The products we have seen and tried include: famous buildings, military vehicles and aircraft, musical instruments, mechanical warriors, and some historical objects.

The experience of trying to pull together a Piececool kit is certainly challenging. We have tried and tested dozens of hobby products, maybe even more than a hundred over a twenty year period testing toys, and we would put Piececool about in the middle for difficulty versus most model kits – which is quite a good thing we believe, because too difficult can become frustrating and too easy feels a bit like a waste of money!

The product we were asked to test for Piececool was the Black Dragon, this is one of the more difficult of the range, but the reward at the end is frankly magnificent, as this video shows:

 

WHO’S IT FOR: Piececool’s The Black Dragon is a challenging hobby kit. This is not really a kids toy, as such we suggest it is most suitable for adults, or teenagers who are keen hobbyists.

THE TOY VERDICT

Piececool The Black Dragon is a challenging but very rewarding hobby kit featuring sleek metal and a fantastic end result. Recommended.
