CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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. Mars Exploration Rover NASA's twin rovers, named Spirit and Opportunity, launched separately in 2003 and landed three weeks apart in January 2004. They made important discoveries about wet environments on ancient Mars that may have been favorable for supporting microbial life. Although Spirit ceased communicating with Earth in March 2010, Opportunity continues its work on the Red Planet. The model is 3.65x3.35x2.35 inches when built. Difficulty level: Challenging. No glue or solder needed.

assemble. I would not recommend this as a first model as it requires some skills obtained from assembling some less complicated
models. In particular there are multiple parts that must be rolled to form tubular structure such as the wheels and several instruments on the Rover base plate. Extreme care should be used when shaping part # 38 as it has some very narrow portions that must be bent to shape as part of one of the base plate instruments. There are several antennas that are difficult to attach rigidly to the base plate. I found that applying a piece of scotch tape under the base plate (where it will not be seen upon completion) helps to hold these antennas more rigidly. If the designer of the model had provided 3 attachment prongs instead of 2 these parts would have been more stable. This is a great model once it is completed and well worth the time and effort spent in it's assembly.
Anyways, that's all, have a great day.
Pro Tip: Buy a 32 piece center punch set ($14 on amazon). Any time there are cylinder shapes you'll likely find the exact diameter in the punch set. Well worth the $. I also use a jewelers screwdriver set as well for the super small ones.
