Wonder of the World
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. MetalWorks 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 Golden Gate Bridge is an easy Metal Earth model. It consists of 15 pieces on one sheet of metal.
Please note that MetalEarth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. MetalEarth was originally called MetalWorks.
Are you curious...?
Construction of the Golden Gate Bridge began in 1933 after the ferries that had done the job since 1820 could no longer handle the traffic. The Art Deco bridge opened in 1937 at a cost of $35 million -- ahead of schedule and under budget. It had the longest suspension-bridge main span in the world until 1964. The American Society of Civil Engineers declared it a Wonder of the Modern World.
