The Silver White House
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on one, two, or three 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. Metal Earth models are a little less challenging than our 3D wooden puzzles, but you do need some patience and dexterity because they're also much smaller. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products tab).
The White House is one of the easier Metal Earth models. It consists of just 19 pieces on two sheets of metal, and most of the bends are 90-degree angles.
Metal Earth models have sharp edges and small parts. They are not suitable for children under 14.
Are you curious...?
Legend says that the White House was painted white to hide fire damage after the British burned it in 1814. It was known as "The Presidential Mansion" or "President's Palace" before the White House name caught on. Under President (and wheelchair user) Franklin D Roosevelt, the White House became the first handicapped-accessible building in Washington. It hasn't changed much since the Truman reconstruction of the early 1950s.
