world tradeThis is the eighth 3D laser cut model from Metal Works (Metal Marvels) I’ve purchased.

It was the easiest model to assemble so far. If you don’t have experience assembling small model I would recommend starting with this particular model. It has few parts and most of them are pretty big sized, so it is really easy to put them together.

I would recommend next set of tools to make the process of assembling much smoother:
— Needle nose pliers TEKTON 3511 8-Inch Long Nose Pliers
— Small flat screwdriver (1/4″ Bit) Flat Head Screwdriver — 1/4″ Bit — 6″ Shaft
— Tweezers General Tools 415 Utility Tweezers
— Some hard (metal) flat surface to make 90⁰ bends

Also, sometimes instead of making 90⁰ bends, it is easier to grab a pin with nose pliers and make a twist clockwise, it is really helpful especially when the party going to be covered.

I have attached some pictures, so you can see how the process of assembling looks like.

The model does not require any additional hardware or glue to finish. It is made with high quality materials and looks awesome. I really like how it’s designed and manufactured. For example, when I was assembling London Bridge I misread the instruction and had to disassemble half of it and then put them back together. I didn’t break anything while moving parts front and back – which is a really good sign of quality.

I would recommend following every part of the instructions which included with every item. Instructions are very clear and easy to read, and sometimes if you miss-follow them you might need to redo some steps again.

In conclusion, I would like to summarize everything I said before: great quality, design, instructions. No additional hardware required, but you might want to use some tools. A little experience required, but recommended for beginner. It is durable enough, so my cat couldn’t destroy it 🙂

It is very interesting and nice model. Definitely not a toy, but a great present for 13+ kids who interested in modeling. I will buy more models from this company for sure. Check out other models from this company on Amazon.

Так вот, еще немного про Амазон. Вот эту последнюю модельку я получил в качестве некого подарка. Только недавно заметил, что у них некоторые товары идут как add-on item. image

При покупке на определенную сумму, обычно это 25$ такой товар можно добавить в корзину и его тебе отправят по сниженной цене.

В моем случае это было 1.99, что порадовало ибо в среднем такая моделька стоит 11+. Так что, теперь покупая что-нибудь на 25, всегда можно поискать и докинуть чего-то нужного, если оно есть.. Если оно нужное.. Короче, мне понравилось. Не знаю давно ли у них такая фича, только пару дней назад заметил.

Previously, I wrote about Metal Works Burj Khalifa and said that was the hardest model so far. Well, I think this one was the hardest, because of the flag and small parts on the roof. But, as always, I liked the design and quality of material. I just would not recommend it for beginner.

This is fifth model I bought from Metal Works so far! The first one was Metal Marvels — Empire State Building, the second is Metal Works London Tower Bridge 3D Laser Cut Model Marvel and the third Metal Works Neuschwanstein Castle 3D Laser Cut Model Marvel.

The forth, like I said, was Metal Works Burj Khalifa

I would recommend next set of tools to make the process of assembling much smoother:

— Needle nose pliers TEKTON 3511 8-Inch Long Nose Pliers

— Small flat screwdriver Flat Head Screwdriver — 1/4″ Bit — 6″ Shaft

— Tweezers General Tools 415 Utility Tweezers
— Some hard (metal) flat surface to make 90⁰ bends

Про Амазон.ком

28 Ноя

Прочитал вчера интересную статью про онлайн магазин Амазон. А так как я люблю Амазон очень сильно, то я даже эту самую статью захотел поместить у себя. Перевода дословного делать не стал, так  – от фонаря своими словами все.

Готовясь к новогодним и предшествующим им праздникам, Амазон дополнительно трудоустроил 50тыщ человеков в свои 40 складов,  по всей стране, в которых сортируются, хранятся и готовятся к отправке миллионы очень нужных и хороших штук .

Ожидается, что шопоголизм возрастет на 40% с предыдущим годом. К слову, в прошлом году в Кибер Понедельник – день всеамериканской онлайн распродажи, Амазон продавал 200 штук товаров в секунду.

Metal Works London Tower Bridge 3D Laser Cut Model Marvel

This was the model I bought from Metal Works (Metal Marvels). I purchased this one from a local gift store, but then I ordered another one from Amazon and it was Metal Marvels — Empire State Building and would like to write my review based on these two models.

First of all it was much more fun and much easier to assemble comparing to Empire… If you don’t have experience assembling small model I would recommend starting with this particular model. Even though it is a lot of parts – it is easier to assemble them.

I would recommend next set of tools to make the process of assembling much smoother:

— Needle nose pliers TEKTON 3511 8-Inch Long Nose Pliers

— Small flat screwdriver Flat Head Screwdriver — 1/4″ Bit — 6″ Shaft

— Tweezers General Tools 415 Utility Tweezers

— Some hard (metal) flat surface to make 90⁰ bends
