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 below).

Burj Khalifa is an easy Metal Earth model. It consists of just 20 pieces on two sheets of metal.

Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.


 

Are you curious...?

Dubai's 2,723' (830 m) Burj Khalifa is, as of 2012, the tallest manmade structure in the world. Construction began in 2004 as the flagship of a development called Downtown Dubai. Five years and $1.5 billion later, Burj Khalifa opened for business as the Burj Dubai (Dubai Tower). Office space was going for $4,000 per square foot and housing was selling for $3,500/sq ft. Unfortunately for the developers, the Burj's opening happened to coincide with the global financial crisis and with overbuilding in Dubai. Rents fell by 40% and most of those expensive apartments stayed empty. After Dubai got a bailout from its neighbor Abu Dhabi, the building was renamed for Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the president of the United Arab Emirates and the man most responsible for greasing the financial wheels. The tower's Downtown Dubai development is supposed to include 30,000 homes, nine hotels, a shopping mall, and an artificial lake. Its purpose is to attract international investment to diversify Dubai's economy beyond its reliance on oil production.
