Metal Earth Big Ben by Fascinations

Item# FMMS019


Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London but today the name also refers to the clock and the clock tower. The bell weighs almost 14 tons and each clock face is 23 feet in diameter. It became fully operational on September 7th, 1859 and is now one of the most prominent symbols of London standing at 316 feet high. The clock requires winding three times per week and pennies are periodically added or removed from the clock of pendulum to maintain its accuracy.

These detailed miniature size models start as 4” square flat steel sheets and are transformed into amazing 3D models. Use the easy to follow instructions to pop out the pieces by hand or with wire cutters. Small scissors or tweezers are also good tools to have on hand. Then bend the tabs using needle nose pliers and connect them at the attachment points. Connect them one by one until your masterpiece is revealed. No glue is required! These creations do require fine motor skills and patience but the end result is well worth your time and effort.

The finished miniature structure measures 3.5” - 4.5”. Each set includes 4” squares of laser etched sheet metal. Recommended Age: 14+.
