Model size: 54,0 x 16.0 x 37,0 cm
easy assembly without glue (small pliers and cutter/spring knife recommended)
Contents: Sanded plywood, wax and a picture by picture building instructions.
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 technical marvel by Mr. Playwoods is a scaled down copy of Tower Bridge (reconstructed from an old engraving).
The bridge was built by Mr. Playwood to reduce the amount of time the young inventor spent every day between his home and the Academy of Engineers. Before the bridge was put into operation, the journey time was four and a half minutes. The bridge reduced it to three minutes and twenty seconds.
Tower Bridge was co-designed by the infamous architect Mr. Woodson, who is known for designing a moisture and windproof tree house.
The towers of the bridge served as a home for Mr. Playwood's pets - the giant Roman snail Slipper and the lizard Silver.
The legend of the bridge says that anyone who crosses the bridge blindfolded and does not stumble wins the competition. So far nobody has managed to accomplish this feat.
