    Pretty fun little model. Took about an hour to put it together. The instructions are terrible though; another reviewer commented on the tail section and it’s entirely true. The same goes for their other models. These are fun little creations but you can see the holes in the planning process where pieces could have been cut out differently so they are easier to remove from the base sheet or the instructions could have been in a different order.

    The metal is pretty flimsy, but hey, it’s supposed to be cut out with a laser what do you expect? The metal is meant to be easily bendable with your hands and pliers. If you get frustrated easily, then model building is not for you. If you enjoy a small challenge or want to give a neat inexpensive gift then these models are great. I’m on my 3rd model and will keep going.

    4 stars because the instructions weren’t that great and it isn’t on the same scale as my F-22. Not sure what goes into scaling these but it would have been nice to have them all the same.

    This is a good product the price is too high. It should be a dollar or 2.

    Here’s what you need to put this together: pliers and patience. Yes, it’s all insert tab and bend (or twist), and sometimes curve. The metal is very thin and warps easily, plus can break. The instructions are not very good at all. It had me join the tail section together and THEN insert the rudders and tail rotor, which involved disassembling the tail so I could bend the tabs. Don’t get me wrong, for the person with the right kind of temperament is a lot of fun to put together. They provide a web link to a 360 image. Have that open as you assemble. Very small pliers are a must. I used Beadsmith Jeweler’s Micro Pliers. Plus tweezers and something round like a pen or marker to help with the curves.

    Fairly easy build. Didnt take that long to complete.

    Super cool model. Easy to build. Perfect for people who are building their first metal earth model. I have build 6 of them and have a lot of experience with them and this is by far the easiest to build. Takes around 30-45 minutes. Make sure you have needle nose pliers or tweezers and a small wire cutter to snip the pieces out.

    I love the affordability of the products offered. This took some time to put together and I would highly recommend buying right tools to assemble these. If you can’t afford them all just buy a good pair of cutters so that you don’t bend or twist parts so much they snap apart.
    Overall very satisfied I purchased 5 helicopters and a fire truck and they all came out decent. No complaints.

    Great for beginners, first model I’ve ever done. Wasn’t overwhelming, quite fiddly (but doable) with just fingers.

    This model took me about 30-45 minutes to put together. I had built the 

    Metal Marvels “The Black Pearl”

     model previously and liked this one better, it didn’t rely on bending imprecise curves to get things to line up, it’s all very angular. Make sure you read the instructions and understand how things are going to go together. I screwed this up by putting the body of the helicopter onto the deck without first attaching the skids. The tail rotor was also a bit tricky to put on and could probably be designed better. You will definitely need a good pair of skinny needle-nose pliers to assemble it. All in all it was fun to build and makes a nice desk ornament. I added a couple pictures so you can see what it looks like assembled.

    Great little model. Not the easiest but definitely not the hardest.

    Habe bereits mehrere Bausätze dieser Art gekauft und auch zusammen gebaut. Jedesmal sage ich zum Schluss: Nie wieder! Ist eher was für Feinmechaniker oder angehende Uhrmacher. Wichtig ist auf jeden Fall sehr filligranes Werkzeug. Macht dennoch viel Spass und sieht im Regal auch noch toll aus. Und man ist ja auch ein bisschen Stolz. Wahrscheinlich werde ich nicht eher ruhen, bis ich alle Modelle habe.

    The media could not be loaded.

     Like others have said, the instructions are slightly out of order. When building, attach the tail rudders and tail rotor before assembling the rest of the puzzle, or you’re going to have a bad time.
    These things are a great way to spend an afternoon. Took me about 30 minutes to build the Huey with a pair of curved tweezers and some snips.

    I use the snips to cut the pieces loose because the metal is so thin, I worry about bending the pieces before assembly, so I just cut them out.
