Metal Earth models are made from laser-cut sheets of steel that are used to build unique licensed models such as the Kepler Spacecraft! An excellent DIY hobby model kit.
This model comes in flat-packed sheets with insane levels of detail. It’s a unique and fulfilling challenge for dedicated model enthusiats to pop out the pieces and bend the tabs to assemble a large scale model of this popular and resourceful astromech droid for their display box or collection.
You won’t require glue or scissors to complete this kit, all you’ll need is a keen eye, a steady hand. If you wish, a pair of tweezers or magnifying glass can be used to assist in removing the pieces from their backing, but the most important thing you’ll need is patience. It may take a few days!
Kepler is a space observatory launched by NASA to discover Earth-size planets orbiting other stars. Named after astronomer Johannes Kepler, the spacecraft was launched on March 7, 2009, into an Earth-trailing heliocentric orbit. The Kepler Mission, NASA Discovery mission #10, is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover hundreds of Earth-size and smaller planets in or near the habitable zone and determine the fraction of the hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy that might have such planets.
