I'm not very good at making model kits

After a day of trying to fold the little fiddly tabs on this awful thing together only to have them snap off along with bigger chunks of fatigued metal, behold the Empire State Building in all of its three inch tall glory!

It was like folding up a razor blade. There was blood everywhere and I'm cut to ribbons. I got so frustrated with it that I threw it in the bin once, but as you can see, I fished it back out again and was able to repair it with some carefully applied sticky tape.

The "Metal Works Empire State Building 3D Laser Cut Model" was a dismal failure. It didn't even come with a King Kong figure!

I never want to get anything like this as a present ever again!
