Notre-Dame de Paris also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.

I’ve never been to Notre Dame de Paris but my daughter has and the completed model was a gift for her. She was very impressed! The detail is amazing. I assumed it would be larger than the Metal Earth series, which it is, but still very small. To get an idea of scale, there’s plenty of room to put this model on a dollar bill. The big difference is complexity. There’s four times the sheet metal area compared to a regular Metal Earth model. Also, the picture on this Amazon site as I write this is not correct. It is apparently a pre-production sample, as the actual model is far better. Check out the Fascinations web site for the latest photos, including a 360 spin-around.
I have a little constructive feedback for Fascinations: The locations of some of the sprues, especially for some of the flying buttresses (but not all) were in the thinnest area of the parts, exactly the opposite of where they should be. One must be very careful removing those parts from the sheet without damaging them. Speaking of flying buttresses, they should have been longer and inserted into slots in the main building to keep them aligned. As it is they are hanging in space and almost impossible to line up perfectly parallel with each other. Otherwise, simply awesome.
Instructions aren't hard to follow, and I must say, the metal has a very nice color to it. These are something for adults to do when they're trying to quit a habit like smoking. I'm still smoking, but every now and then I get to work on this thing. I'm not that concerned if I never finish it.
BTW, these would be fairly difficult for any child to put together. Some bending is required for the curves sections and the tabs aren't always easy to get at, as noted before. A teen could do these, but not under 12 or 13, I'd think.
One warning: this requires an adult to put it together because some of the pieces are "razor" sharp and they are tiny. This is a perfect gift for an adult who enjoys puzzles and/or architecture.
Just a note - PLEASE heed the manufacturer's warning that these are NOT toys and are not for children. These kits require patience (particularly the 3-sheet models, which can take a couple hours to complete). These do not go together like simple puzzles.
Also, without a few tools, you simply cannot complete them - in particular, needle nose pliers are helpful and flat-nose pliers are basically required. The company sells a branded kit, but I bought it and I can tell you the quality is VERY mediocre.
This Amazon listing says its for 14 months and up. It should say 14 years and up! And it would require a 14 year old with a lot of patience.
The product comes with tweezers. I strongly suggest getting small needle nose pliers, like what you find in jewelry sections of craft stores. Tweezers are too big.
My one tiny complaint is the top of the flying buttresses don't anchor to the building. I suspect it would require overly precise fitting of other pieces for it to all work. You have to actively look for it to see it, however. Seriously, it's a beautiful piece.

This is one of the more complicated Metal Earth kits, but the results are worth it, it looks stunning when completed. But I really would recommend making one of the other kits first before moving on to this one, it has a lot of pieces and attaching all the flying buttresses is particularly fiddly!
Er liebt es dann einen halben bis ganzen Tag, je nach Schwierigkeit und Geduld, daran zu tüfteln. Auch die Notre Dame hat ihm daher gefallen. Man muss aber dennoch einiges an Geduld und Fingerspitzengefühl mitbringen, aber darin liegt ja auch die Herausforderung.
Ich finde die Produkte von Metal Earth daher so toll, da alles was man braucht dabei ist und kein Kleber notwendig ist. Einfach die Teile verbiegen und los gehts.
Wie immer gilt aber bei diesen Modellen, dass man nur mit viel Ruhe und passendem (Feinmechaniker-) Werkzeug seinen Spaß hat.
