If this is your first Metal Earth Model than it's pretty good. I saw some people screwing up the Bird-House and that'S the easiest one to do.

The most important thing in my opinion is having the right tools to help you folding and bending the metal pieces. if you got that part the rest is pretty easy.

I made a mistake so I had to pull out a part and re-do it. what an annoying thing to straighten out all those twisted pins again -.-'

But here is the fixed model

yea was my 1st, i used a pair of tweezers bc it mentioned tweezers somewhere on the packaging, and my fingers
i cut them and it feels like a slightly worse papercut ow, one on my pinkie finger (cut it on the back of the falcon while trying to put something on the front) one on my 1st finger (trying to put the little antenna thing together) both left hand, right hand was for tweezers, edit 2: i realized i got a 3rd on my right thumb, this is not fun xD

did u ever bend a piece so much u broke a piece? like trying to fix it together and it wont work so u took it apart to try again and that didnt work then it broke, that happened on the stand and on the cylinder bit where the cockpit is it think?

edit: also just realized i put the stand base on backwards lol, explains why it falls over a lot lol

The tools I always have ready when I start building a model kit:




And yes, I broke plenty of parts at the beginning. Usually for bending back and forth or when I try to fold a pin or so and hold the model the wrong way and suddenly everything is fubar...but it hardly happens anymore
I messed up the Arc de Triomphe for example but the fix was easy. Still annoying thought.

When I started with those metal earth kits I used mostly my fingers to do the bendings and I had plenty of cuts and whatnot but once I figured out how they work I use mostly tools for folding and stuff.

Oh yeah, I use the website isntruction manuel when i build them. I use the paper manual only for the part sheet. My friend does the same and it's much better that way. My monitor is bigger and I can see the pictures better.

you don't get cuts if you use tweezers and other tools. I got some cuts at the beginning when I used my fingers...

These are pretty awesome. Any chance you can snap a pic of the drum set, piano, and lead guitar next to a cigarette pack for scale comparison? I'm trying to determine if these would be good to use with my action figure collection.

will do after work. but they are all in different sizes. while the guitars can fit a regular size action figure, the drumset, fiddle and piano are very small.

Thanks for that, looks like at least the drums and guitars will work for me (or I should be able to make them work for me). Much appreciated!

I would thank your post, but alas I am not yet able to. Thanks for the scale comparison, it was very helpful!

Do the wheels move on the warthog?

And I would recommend putting the pictures in a spoiler tag so the webpage doesnt take long to load all these pictures.

No, all models are tightened up with no movable parts. I have no idea how to do the spoiler thingy. I might just do 1 finished pic and a link to the rest in the future though...if i figure out how XD
