Yes I know it has already been stated in some of the threads about what you will need, but I thought it would be good to put it under a dedicated post and make it easier for everyone to find. So first, what are the basics you will need to put them together, then what would you add to make it easier, etc. You don't need them, but they could help you.

Instead of recreating all the threads, I'll put some links in to the different threads that speak to this subject

Glue

Excellent overview build video for a battloid

Battloid Arms Guide
viewtopic.php?f=101&t=145255

I'm sure there are a few others, but these should answer your main question.

So, what is about the average time to put some of these things together?

It took me at least 20-30 minutes for each model, including clipping, clean up, and assembly. Double that the first time building a new type. The VFs Battloid and guardians take the longest.

The Battlepods were slightly faster. Say about 35-40 minutes for a set of three.

Take your time assembling your first model of each type. Once you are happy with that, you should be able to assemble a squadron in an evening. My method is to take the sprues needed for a squadron, then clip all the same parts out at once and glue them. While the glue is setting, assemble the next set of parts, and so on. When you're done, you'll have a bunch of torsos, a bunch of arms, a bunch of legs, etc. Then assemble each complete model. Like i mentioned, should be able to do this in a few hours once you are comfortable with the process.

Thanks for the time frame, and ya, thought it would long the first time, and faster as you went along. And I won't be surprise if it takes a little longer with it being the first time doing anything like this.
