Another over-priced educational set that I never knew about.

I could take it or leave it.

It seems that like me, most people have not heard of this set. I would buy it for the parts and baseplate though.

Hey Ben,

Great outside-the-box thinking on picking this as a review set. I'm sure people know I enjoy microscale (see my blog), so this gets a big thumbs up from me. I've been meaning to feature this and 9322 on MicroBricks. It's too bad that these Dacta sets are relatively unknown (often not on the Lugnet or other databases, though Brickset is pretty good at having them) and often pricey, as many of them are chock full of useful elements.

Are you or anyone else planning on purchasing the set? Scans of the placards would be most welcome. A partlist would be even better ;)

I really like all of these models but the set is quite expensive. Otherwise I would consider buying it.

How much is this set? Stuff created for LEGO Education (formerly DACTA, I suppose?) has often been pretty expensive for what you're getting.
