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
One of the first inventions of six year old Mr. Playwood. The young inventor was inspired by the family's favorite pet - a giant snail called Slipper.
Slipper, which served as a prototype for the money box, is known for its hideous temperament. Slipper once went on the run, insulted by his master. He covered three cubits in twenty-four hours and did not agree to return home until after Mr. Playwood had promised to feed him fine grapes daily.
The box was used by Mr. Playwood to store seeds that the people of the big tree used as currency. Later, when an old treasure buried under the roots of the large tree was discovered, gold coins found in it were also kept in the snail money box.
The box was originally equipped with an anti-theft system. However, Mr. Playwood had to abandon the mechanism after nearly losing a finger that was stuck in the cunning trap.
One of the versions of the money box had a false bottom - Mr. Playwood used it to hide the blueprints of his most secret inventions.
The side walls of the snail money box are made of sun-burned transparent resin that was harvested from the eastern branches of the large tree. This material takes two to five weeks to manufacture and is associated with high risk.
After the snail money box became widespread among the trunks living on the big tree, it became an obligatory gift that a groom offers his chosen bride. Should the girl refuse the application, she will empty the contents of the box on the head of the unfortunate applicant.
The snail money box was kidnapped twice by Mr. Playwood. The first time it was stolen by a nomad named Red Beard. As a punishment, the tribal leaders sentenced him to three months of community service on a nut farm. The second time the spadose was snatched by the giant bird Ruakh that lives in the upper branches, and Mr. Playwood could only get his property back with the present of the shotgun.
