Steel Yourself

Build your way across America with these intricate metal model sets. The set contains all the pieces needed to create miniature metal version of three national icons—the White House, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. A fun challenge - the tiny pieces are laser-cut from thin sheets of metal and given finely engraved details, even down to individual bricks on the White House walls. Simply snap the pieces from their sheet and assemble them according to the directions using a tab-and-slot system. Give the tabs a twist with a pair of needle-nosed pliers to hold them in place—no glue is required. Made in China.

We're working to build our assortment of fun puzzles and games, and we think this Steel Building Kit fits right in. Would you love to construct your own mini Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge, or White House?

I love this. I have a 13 year old who loves this stuff and you can't find creative building products for their age that aren't legos! Great find and am excited to purchase.

I'm so excited to see something like this. I have older boys who have outgrown legos, but still love to build. These would be perfect! Great find.

Hi, Victory. We appreciate your concern for safety! We gave the product a try, and found that none of the edges were sharp or could be dangerous.

This would be a great gift as long as the cost is reasonable.
