MetalEarth - P-40 Warhawk
Difficulty - Moderate
Metal Eartch is a collection of intricately designed model building kits. Each kit consists of remarkably detailed laser etching cut onto two or more sheets of thin metal. Simply snap out the pieces – usually over 25 pieces, often more – bend the tabs to attach them together and create highly-detailed replicas of vehicles and architecture that fit in the palm of your hand. Striking to look at, especially when placed to catch the light, most models take a few hours to assemble, and when completed measure between three to five inches as their longest dimension. All can be assembled without any glue, although tweezers, needle nose pliers, or the handy Metal Earth Tool Set to bend the tabs will save you from sore fingers. Because of the tiny size of the components and the complexity of the models, Metal Earth models make ideal gifts for teens and adults.
