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 Leaning Tower of Pisa, known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side, is the freestanding bell tower of the cathedral in the Italian city of Pisa. Work on the ground floor of the white marble campanile began on August 8, 1173. The model is 2.4x1.9x1.9 inches when built. Difficulty level: Easy. No glue or solder needed.

The floors are built one at a time, then stacked on top of each other. The pins that hold the lower walls to the upper floor, and the upper walls to that same floor, insert at the same circular distance out. That description may not make sense until you actually build the Tower, but what it means is you have parts fighting for space, and the result is that it is difficult to put it together well
The outer guard rails make the tower look fantastic; but you have to be VERY CAREFUL in pre-shaping them (I used AA and AAA batteries to roll the shapes), else they won't come out looking well
I take 3 stars away for difficulty and the parts fit issue, and give one back because of subject. This is a model of the Leaning Tower!!!
Fascinations Metal Earth Eiffel Tower 3D - its my favorite. Others models while beautiful are a bit challenging and some times frustrating, but I guess its part of the experience and fun. If you want to start with a Model, let this be the one.
A tip for this model is to match all the seams so they all line up in a single line. Figure out which side you want displayed and place this seam in the back. Plan ahead for this part and do not bend or twist the tabs until you have figured this placement. It's a pain to undo the tabs once they are twisted or bent.
This model driven me crazy because it is pretty hard and it's not fun as it seems.
The thing is I do not really like to bend metal into a prefect circle. However, this model is entire in cirle.
It is hard. Real hard. I have already built 16 models and I still think this is the hardest one.
