Roman Colosseum Metal Earth ICONX Overview
Parts can be easily clipped from the metal sheets and as shown on instructions, tweezers make an ideal tool for bending or twisting connection tabs. An excellent DIY hobby model kit.
The Metal Earth ICONX models are larger models with increased detail and more accuracy than regular Metal Earth models. They are amazingly detailed etched models that are fun and satisfying to assemble. Each model starts out as square metal sheets and you simply pop out the pieces and follow the included instructions to assemble your model. No glue or solder needed.
This massive stone amphitheater was commissioned around A.D. 70 by Emperor Vespasian as a gift to the Roman people. In A.D. 80, his son Titus opened the Colosseum with 100 days of games, including gladiatorial combats and wild animal fights. The Colosseum remained in use for more than four centuries.
After four centuries of active use, the magnificent arena fell into neglect, and up until the 18th century it was used as a source of building materials. Though two-thirds of the original Colosseum has been destroyed over time, the amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history.
