I’ve been eyeing these miniature metallic nano puzzle sets for a while – though it’s mostly the Star Wars sets I’ve been eyeing instead. I’ve been wanting to try them out, partly because of this recent desire to make miniature things, so I figured I should begin with something easy. I picked out the San Francisco cable car set mostly because of the memories I have of the city. =D
Instructions are simple and easy to follow. But my god, it’s pretty fragile and you really need to be careful with how much you bend these things. I bent one part of the seats a bit too much because I was so focused on getting a nice 90 degree angle. And then… that part snapped off. Luckily it’s on the inside of the cable car so I can sticky-tape the inside and no one will ever know.
It was a pretty fun experience making this! Very fiddly and using tweezers to twist/bend those little tabs makes things a lot easier. Would I buy another set? I’m not sure… though it’s not so much that I don’t want to make another – I’m completely up for this! My problem lies with the fact that I don’t know where I could display such a fragile item. I always have space issues in HK.
If I do buy another set, it’ll most likely be something from the Star Wars series – perhaps either the AT-AT or Millenium Falcon set.
