The Metal Earth models are amazingly detailed etched models that are fun and satisfying to assemble. Each model starts out as 4 inch square metal sheets and you simply pop out the pieces using wire cutters and follow the included directions to assemble your model. The 1908 Ford Model T was the first automobile mass produced on moving assembly lines with completely interchangeable parts marketed to the middle class. This car had 2 forward gears, a 20 horsepower engine and no driver doors. The model is 3.5x1.95x1.8 inches when built. Difficulty level: Moderate. No glue or solder needed.

This will take me at LEAST 10 hours to complete (my best estimate). I am a skilled tool and die maker and I am used to working under a microscope. I have nearly every tool imaginable at my disposal, but I needed that magnifying stand, these are VERY small parts indeed and my 49 yr old eyes wouldn't do it without help!!
I think a dentist or surgeon would enjoy this model, needs a lot of care and precision to make. This model is NOTHING like a plastic model. Soem basic knowledge of steel is helpful. The stainless steel parts are very ductile (soft). The sheet is annealed, so it bend very easily. this is good AND bad sometimes. It is a bit tricky to bend one thing and NOT make bends where you don't want them, you need some long nose small pliers with NO serrations in the jaws. GET A REALLY BRIGHT LIGHT!!
I include a few pictures of how far I've gotten. The little radiator cap was not too bad, but the headlights were difficult to do nicely. Like I said get some metal pins/dowels to wrap around to pre-form and it makes it easier. Use a small abrasive stone or a Dremel and diamond point to remove any flash that can interfere with fitting to other pieces.
* Some of the pieces are extremely tiny. It's very easy to drop a small piece and then spend the next 15 minutes trying to find it under the couch. It's a good idea to work on a piece of black fabric, so pieces are easy to find if you drop one.
* Don't even think about trying to put this together without at least a pair of needle-nose pliers. Tweezers, wire-cutters, and a tool that lets you bend the metal into curves are also very helpful.
* Follow the instructions closely and don't rush. Trust me, once you attach a piece, you don't want to have to detach it.
* There are a few points in where the instructions aren't as detailed as they could be. Notably, assembling the wheels and attaching them to the chassis has to be done in a set order that the instructions don't sufficient emphasize -- you may want to attach the inside wheel-rim to the tire/outside wheel-rim before attaching the entire wheel to the chassis, but it's important to attach the inside wheel-rim to the chassis before attaching the rest of the wheel to the inside rim. The instructions should make that clear, but they don't.
* This took me about three hours of work to assemble and the result looks very nice!
