Metal Earth 3D Models
Create awesome, desktop-sized replicas of historical landmarks and vehicles! Each kit comes with one or two thin, flexible sheets of shiny metal with all the pieces laser cut and engraved. Follow the directions to assemble the models using tabs and slots no glue or soldering required! When you're done, you'll have a highly-detailed model. Sizes vary, but most would fit within a 5" cube.
The instructions are somewhat tricky to follow and some parts are quite small, so these would be best for older children or experienced model builders. Recommended tools for assembly include needle nose pliers, tweezers, clippers, and curved items to help you shape rounded parts. These will take some time to assemble, but the finished product is definitely worth the effort!
Your models will also be worth displaying, so make sure you check out the Solar Spinners and the LED lit display bases!The Solar Spinners don't need any batteries; they simply run off of your regular room lighting. They feature a black pyramid shaped base (with a flat top) and an acrylic disc to set your model on.Models will slowly rotate so you can admire every angle! Choose from the regular spinner or the low light option.Spinners measure 4.3" x 4.3" x 1.75".The LED Display Bases are flat, round, and black, measuring 3.75" in diameter and .25" thick.Choose from either white or blue LED lights to highlight your models.
