The Cessna 172 is a popular light aircraft that was first built in 1955 and is still being manufactured today! For someone with an interest in aeronautical or war history, an aviation buff, a pilot, or just as a beautiful object with the satisfaction of knowing you built it yourself, the Metal Earth Cessna 172 would be a worthy addition to a collection, or a great place to start one!
The Metal Earth series are amazing 3D models to build from laser cut steel sheets.
We stock several flight-related items from the Metal Earth range. Why not collect them all? Incredibly detailed, these fascinating models are definitely a challenge to build. Care and patience are required, but the results are well worth the effort. Long-nosed pliers are also recommended (not included). This is one of the simpler models in our range, and takes about an hour and a quarter to complete. A stand is provided, to display in an attitude of flight. As the model is tail-heavy, weight would need to be added to the nose to allow the model to stand on its wheels.
Recommended for ages 14 and over. Due to their small size, Metal Earth models should be kept out of the reach of children under three years of age.
