Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London though 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 today 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.

This is a DIY metal assembly model kit with incredible detail made from high quality steel sheets. Each models parts are cut from one or more square steel sheets. Parts are put together with NO GLUE or SOLDERING required. Easy to follow instructions are included. Long-nose pliers and bending tools are recommended. Simply cut out the parts and bend the tabs to insert into indicated attachment points. No painting required, as most are natural metal in colour while some kits may be pre-coloured.

Recommended for ages 14 and over. Due to their small size and sharp corners, Metal Earth models should be kept out of the reach of children under three years of age.
