INDEXED

Hi!!!  On my way back from Beijing via British Airways, I found they sold this set, so, without doubting it, I got it. So, here's a short review, hope you enjoy it...

Set: 7688 - Sports Aeroplane
Year: 2010
Theme: Town, Airline Promo Set
Pieces: 105
Price U$S 25.-

One thing that caught my atention is the relatively small size of the box.  Having 105 pieces, the box is quite smaller than in other sets.  I guess it has to do with the fact that it is sold on airplanes, where there's not much space. :) Just a pic, to compare with a minifig.

The support car:
It has a really simple design, but I find it really cute.  comes with a couple of tools to repair the plane and a fire extinguisher.

Thoughts:
Really nice set to own.  the design od the plane is great and the first LEGO plane to have a bubble cockpit.  If built in other colours, it could easily be turned into a WWII fighter or a brazilian Tucano.  If you have the chance, get it!!!!
