Building the Empire State
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 Empire State Building is an easy MetalWorks model. It consists of just 17 pieces on one sheet of metal. Assembled, it measures 3.90" x 1.17" x 1.25" (10 x 3 x 3.2 cm).
Please note that MetalWorks models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children.
Are you curious...?
At 1250' (381 m, without its radio antenna) the 102-story Empire State Building in New York City was the world's tallest for 40 years, but as of 2012 it's merely the third tallest in the US and the 15th in the world. It takes its name from New York's motto, "the empire state".
