Light Metal Universe

Sign in to follow this  


Still no game screenshot for today but I finished two metal models:
I had to use tweezers (some parts are 1-2mm wide) and various sizes of screwdrivers (to shape the cylinders).
Two more to go (a Tie Advanced and an AT-AT) !

The models are from http://www.fascinations.com/ in the "Metal Earth" category.

They have a lot of different models from buildings to spaceships.

The one I have are provided like this:



Inside you have the metal sheets and the instructions:



And you can get this result:



These models are small (6 or 7cm) but they have bigger ones. All you have to do is get the parts out of the sheets, fold them and connect them with really, really small tabs you put in holes. The quality is really good, with very fine details. Some assembly needs a bit of reflection (the order of operations can be important with some parts for easier connection) and tools (like tweezers) are more than recommended to fold the tabs.
