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 Black Pearl is a fairly easy Metal Earth model. It consists of just 18 pieces on two sheets of metal. Bending the sails might make this one a little trickier than its low piece count would lead you to expect.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Metal Earth was formerly called MetalWorks.

Most people think of the rechristened Wicked Wench from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but there really was a ship called the Black Pearl. It was captained by the buccaneer Henry Morgan, who built quite a reputation looting and pillaging Spanish settlements in the Caribbean. His career was so successful that the buccaneers elected him as their admiral. Eventually he was knighted for his services to the crown and appointed lieutenant governor of Jamaica, proving that crime does pay if you enlist on the winning side. Our knowledge of the original Black Pearl comes from a crude drawing by one of her sailors.
