Timberdoodle's review
MetalEarth Ships Set includes these three MetalEarth DIY replicas of famous ships:

The largest ship afloat left Southampton, England, April 10, 1912 on her maiden voyage to New York City. Just five days later at 2:20 am on the morning of April 15th she sank after hitting an iceberg 400 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia. Of the 2,223 people on board, only 710 survived.

Staten Island Ferry
Service began in 1817 to carry people between Staten Island and the city of New York. It is operated by the New York City Department of Transportation and transports about 75,000 passengers a day.

Golden Hind
The Golden Hind or Hinde was an English galleon best known for its circumnavigation of the globe between 1577 and 1580, captained by Sir Francis Drake. She was originally known as the Pelican, but was renamed by Drake mid-voyage in 1578, as he prepared to enter the Strait of Magellan, calling it the Golden Hind to compliment his patron, Sir Christopher Hatton, whose armorial crest was a golden 'hind' (a female deer). Hatton was one of the principal sponsors of Drake's world voyage.

About the MetalEarth Kits
Metal Earth is a collection of intricately designed model building kits. Each kit consists of remarkably detailed laser etching cut onto one or more four-inch square sheets of thin metal. Simply snap out the eight to twelve pieces, bend the tabs to attach them together and create highly-detailed replicas of vehicles and architecture that fit in the palm of your hand. Striking to look at, especially when placed to catch the light, most Metal Earth models take less than an hour to assemble, and on average measure about three inches long when completed. All can be assembled without any glue, although tweezers or needle nose pliers to bend the tabs will save your child from sore fingers. Because of the tiny size of the components and the complexity of the models, Metal Earth models make ideal gifts for children ten years and older, teens, and even dads and moms!
