Desktop warefare kits, low cost, suit the office, a little handy assembly required, quite fun

The creative engineering hivemind! My dad is a bit of a handyman and in his youth was a technician for eircom so I think he would blend in quite easily with the Tog mentality. Today he is a consultant project manager but still enjoys using his hands-on skills when he can. This is evidenced by the digital amphitheatre that is our TV room. He rarely gets to talk about his technical skills at home so a project present might give him the oppurtunity to do that.  I think it would be new territory in terms of present giving but I'd much rather take the risk than give a lame unthoughtful present.  One quick warning though is that my dad is very busy in general with work so anything that requires very long intensive periods of time may turn him off
> So, TOG elves can you please help? I'd really appreciate some suggestions for presents. Things you wish you could get your hands on or past presents that you really enjoyed. Maybe even some suggestions of presents NOT to get :D This email may even help some other people out there looking for ideas for presents.
