This kit is characterized by natural materials, which are assembled without glue. All components are already laser-cut and ready for assembly after being cut out of the sanded plywood panel. The detailed instructions with pictures facilitate the easy assembly step by step..
The assembly requires some handy skills, since the partly filigree components have to be joined together with controlled force from time to time. If the procedure is too careless or rough, individual parts can be irreparably damaged. As with other model parts, the same applies here as with other model parts: "Look closely at the instructions, less force, more patience and a more precise procedure".
History of this model
This device, assembled by Mr. Playwood when he was ten, was bought by farmers. They used the microscope to examine pollen, seeds and tiny pests.
Thanks to the microscope, they successfully identified and eliminated microscopic beetles that were responsible for the destruction of more than a handful of fruit farms.
To assemble the microscope, Mr. Playwood used durable tree bark, solid, clear resin and shavings stuck in the branches.
The microscope is one of Mr. Playwood's most complex inventions: it took him three months to develop the device.
At first, Mr. Playwood was so shocked by the things that were seen under the microscope that he lost all appetite for a week. The infusoria he discovered seemed rather hideous creatures to him. But as he got to know them better, he took a liking to them and even gave them names.
The estimated value of this device was the value of ten elephants or three shotguns.
