The Metal Earth models are amazingly detailed etched models that are fun and satisfying to assemble. Each model starts out as 4 inch square metal sheets and you simply pop out the pieces using wire cutters and follow the included directions to assemble your model. The Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay crosses the Sacramento River in the heart of Redding, California. Designed by world renowned architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava the bridge link the 300 acre north and south campuses of Turtle Bay Exploration Park. It has served as the downtown entrance to Redding's extensive Sacramento River Trail system since its July 4th 2004 opening. The bridge celebrates human creativity and ingenuity which are important themes of Turtle Bay. The steel, glass and granite span evokes a sense of weightlessness and the translucent non-skid decking provides for spectacular viewing at night while being environmentally sensitive. The pylon, cable stays and glass deck preserve the salmon spawning habitat beneath the bridge while encouraging public appreciation for the river below. The model is 5.45x2.65x1.25 inches when built. Difficulty level: Easy. No glue of solder needed.
