Well other members have posted very good suggestions, unless you have completed many kits already, you will probably botch the whole project up. You could get the most complex kit but I would let it sit on the shelf until you are confident you can actually successfully build it. When I started cardmodels, I built 1-2 curell models (screwed up a a lot more) and decided to buy a GPM TA-152, JU 87 and a Modelik OL-49, suffice to say, I botched all of them.

well it's kinda complicated but i never even saw a kit with my own eyes b4 (as a real thing not on the internet)

here in egypt paper modelling is very extremely unknown so you won't be able to find anything related to it here so yeah this is my first kit to make but i made every single free model i got my hand on so yeah i have a bit of experience

so yeah it'll probably be collecting dust on my shelf but a good model is better than no model

thnx all ( keep the suggestions coming)

The Rail Gun isn't that complicated. There's just a whole &^%$#@! lot of it! Dragon Wagon would qualify or the Russian Scud transporter, or just about any armor with individual track links. :-P

And there's the Prinz Eugen in 1/200 with 7,000 parts and Halinski's Yamato with almost as many.

By complicated do you mean high part count?
or tricky build?

For sheer frustration try Uhu's Blade Runner Blaster or Ironman figure.

I would love it but I have yet to finish either...both are half built...
or should I say half unbuilt.

Ok, here's a dust collector first grade for you. I've had that one for four years in my collection and the day to start building it is still far ahead. I need to buy laser cut tracks for it otherwise I'll never build it. :D

Here you can have a look what it is to build the kit.

Halinski T-34/76

Choice...,

Hi Tapcho,

Just tell your friend thanks for the offer. Tell them that just having them back will be more than enough...,

Now wait a second! Halinski's T-34 is certainly a mammoth and complicated. However, if we look at how Halinski models are being designed, usually the more recent models are more advanced. So using that logic, rather, the Halinski Sherman Firefly is a more suitable candidate.
