If you think Metal Earth models are just too small, Iconx was made for you. Their larger size can accommodate even more laser-etched detail on 4" x 8" (10.16 x 20.32 cm) 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. 

Notre Dame is a moderate challenge Iconx model. It consists of about 46 pieces on two sheets of metal. Notre Dame cathedral is the pinnacle of French Gothic architecture.

Please note that Iconx models have sharp edges and are not suitable for small children. Recommended for ages 14+.


 

Are you curious...?

In 1160, the new Bishop of Paris decided that the 4th-century cathedral of St. Stephen was unworthy, and had it demolished, along with several houses that were in the way of its successor. Construction started in 1163. The core section of the cathedral, the High Altar, wasn't consecrated until 1182, and Notre Dame wasn't finally declared finished until 1345. In 1548, rioting Huguenots damaged what they considered idolatrous features. The ensuing centuries saw several more waves of destruction and restoration, most notably during the French Revolution in 1793, when the cathedral was rededicated to the Cult of Reason and Lady Liberty took the Virgin Mary's place on some altars. Notre-Dame was used as a food warehouse for a time. In 1845 the cathedral's religious role was restored and things were pretty stable until it took some damage in WW2. Another major restoration began in 1991 and dragged on long past the originally planned 10 years. In 2014, most of the lighting was upgraded to LEDs.
