Merry Go Round (Metal Earth 3D Laser Cut Model)
A merry-go-round, is an amusement ride consisting of a rotating circular platform with seats for riders. The "seats" are traditionally in the form of rows of wooden horses or other animals mounted on posts, many of which are moved up and down by gearwork to simulate galloping, to the accompaniment of looped circus music.
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 a bit tricky and some parts are quite small, so these would be best for older children or experienced model builders. You'll need to supply needle nose pliers, tweezers, and clippers, or purchase the Tool Kit which includes nippers, flat nose pliers and needle nose pliers. Finished models are beautiful and can be displayed on a lighted base or spinner, sold below. ICONX kits feature more detail and slightly larger models than original kits. These will take some time to assemble, but the finished product is definitely worth the effort!
