  1. A. D. Turner

    It takes some skill to put this thing together, but the results are fantastic. There are very tiny tabs, around 0.75mm wide , to fit into tiny slots in order to join the parts together. You then either bend the tabs or twist them to secure the connection. Needless to say a very good set of needle nose pliers (the kind used in jewelry making would be best) and a very good set of eyes (or a good set of magnifying lenses) are of great help. The finished model is 9.5cm (3-3/4″) tall when sitting on the base by 10cm (4″) long. The instructions show the base as just a rectangle but the ship sits on it better if you bend the sides out some beneath the bow and stern to narrow the structure.

    Laser cut steel parts that detach surprisingly easy from the parts sheets. The flag might look like it is blowing the wrong way, but closer inspection reveals that the fly is what is attached to the foremast. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Nice easy to complete model, not to many parts to this. The sails took a few attempts to get the right bends to them because they need to fit through the rigging which is one piece but all in all looks good and not difficult

    As long as u don’t go at it like a bull in a China shop it’s super easy to get the pieces out without snips if u don’t have any. But takes longer that way. I love how it looks when it’s finished! It’s so metallic & shiny & fits in the palm of my hand. I actrually put it in a dollhouse! I set it up to look like the kids art project? It was the perfect size!! Not hard to put together, me & my bf did it in a night.

    I’m torn between my rating – I ultimately gave it 3 stars instead of 4 because of the difficulty it is taking to put it together. I love that this is a ship – which was the deciding factor in buying it – BUT it takes a lot of patience and an extra tool to put it together. When I got it I was so excited to put it together and then keep it on my desk at work, but it isn’t working out like that. I had to go out and buy some needle nose pliers and after that I haven’t completed it yet. I got so frustrated that I needed to set it aside. The pieces are tiny and very thin you need to take extra caution when removing them from the packaging. I’m sure once I get it completed I would give it a 4 star rating, but until then it will need to only be a 3.

    As others have said its a very nice product comes with two sheets with the parts cut out i recommend you use a scissor to cut them out so you don’t end up bending it the hardest part was bending the little tabs that hold everything together you definitely need some sort of tool to put it together i used a study tweezer you can use a nose plier or tweezers as i did the size is very small it’s about 2 1/2 inches i took a photo with a car remote so you can see a size comparison be careful not to cut yourself some parts are sharp

    This is mainly a pretty easy model to assemble with just very annoying section – the main hull, this requires some bending, its not clear on how much and it becomes a bend then test for quite a while, once you’ve done one side the other is easy.

    For the sails, I found it easier to bend them over a pen so they had a consistent bend and looked natural rather than finger bent and looking out of shape.

    Bought this for my other half as a valentines present and he loved it! Got a bit frustrated with it at first because the pieces are so small but he got it together after a couple of tries and it looks great! Probably wouldn’t recommend for a complete beginner or someone with larger hands (my other half does) as the pieces are quite easy to bend in the wrong way being so small (he especially had trouble with the sails).

    BLUF: little parts can break, don’t worry just go ahead, make it, and have fun! [it’s missing a little piece in the image]

    It was very simple to make (following the instructions to a t, of course). It was a pleasure to watch it form, and the only “tools” I used were my hands and a pair of rather blunt tweezers. I also want to add that while I broke a couple pieces along the fragile fold lines, I just continued to follow the directions and the end product was very put together!

    Really cool model but kind of hard to put sails together. You’ll need tools to do this unless you want to ruin your fingernails. Bends quite easily too

    This is sort of like the paper cutouts with tabs that you build into animals and such. Except it is cut out of metal. If you aren’t puzzle or build minded, this probably wont be your thing – it isn’t exactly hard but it has quite a few parts. The tabs that connect the pieces are SMALL and most need to be bent to hold in place. The metal is easy to get out of the sheets by hand and large bends are easy by hand. The tabs are not because they are so small. The best tool I found were tweezers. I suspect anyone that suggested needle nose pliers didnt test anything else – they were much too big. DO NOT bend parts multiple times – they will snap after 3 or 4 bends along same spot. I’m pretty good at this sort of stuff & some of the parts take some time to get into place correctly. Once complete, it makes a model that is display worthy and guests may think it was bought assembled.

    Bought this item again for my mum’s partner after having completed it myself. Very fiddly so wouldn’t advise doing this first if you’re new to Metal Earth. Looks great when it’s completed and very detailed. Great accomplishment when completed. Buy decent tweezers!

    If you’ve done laser-cut steel models before: this is not the easiest, but it’s certainly not the hardest. It takes a while but isn’t too frustrating, just finicky, and the final product is amazing. The model isn’t actually bigger when assembled than the simpler ones, just more complex (two sheets of steel parts instead of one).

    If you haven’t done one of these before, be warned, these are not puzzles, but rather small models. You need: needle-nose pliers (while some of them can be done with fingertips only, the Black Pearl is too complex); something round, like a pen, to roll the sails around; and the instructions (difficult to do in the right order otherwise). The results are gorgeous but fragile, suitable for display rather than for playing with.

    All in all, an hour or two enjoyably spent, and an appealing final product.

    What a shame,this looked so good in the images. But a totally useless product. Son who’s been building models for 10+ years chucked it in the bin.Every piece snapped. Too thin to work with.
