The Great Bell Clock Tower DIY Model Kit


Construction of the tower began on 28 September 1843. Elizabeth Tower, originally referred to as the Clock Tower, but more popularly known as Big Ben, was raised as a part of Charles Barry’s design for a new Palace of Westminster after the old palace was largely destroyed by fire on 16 October 1834. Although Barry was the chief architect of the neo-gothic palace, he turned to Augustus Pugin for the design of the Clock Tower, which resembles earlier Pugin designs, including one for Scarisbrick Hall in Lancashire.

The Great Bell Clock Tower DIY Model Kit

The main clock tower in the most influential country in Europe, which ringing of bells the whole world listens to, and the entire establishment checks the clock. Worthy of many mentions. Cinema, literature, billions of selfies, tens of billions of references. The Elizabeth Tower, the most recognizable part of Westminster Abbey and a symbol of London and the UK, generally has cultural and technical value. One of the tallest clock towers in the world, with a height of 96 meters, was built in 1859. It has a unique clockwork that still works today and six bells, the main one weighing 13.7 tons and called Big Ben. Often the tower itself is also called that. The Elizabeth Tower is a worthy object for modeling and collecting.

The designers at Metal Time have created “The Great Bell” DIY model based on the proportions and appearance of London’s famous clock tower. Like the original, the model contains many details that delight fans of independent technical creativity. And yes, it shows the time due to the electronic clock mechanism. It can also be turned into a night light, and you can decorate the bedroom with it.

The time spent on assembling the model will not be wasted.

  • “The Great Bell” DIY model is a stable clock tower prototype that can be used for various purposes.
  • “The Great Bell” has a platform that ensures stability. Many architectural details of the real neo-Gothic tower are reflected in the details of the model. Therefore, its assembly is associated with a small digression into the history of world architecture.
  • The main component of the tower is the clock. The electronic clock mechanism shows real-time and is powered by batteries (not included), which can be easily replaced.
  • In addition, “The Great Bell” can be turned into a table lamp or night light by placing an electrical light source such as an LED candle (not included) or another light source inside.

Attention! Be extremely careful when using open flame sources as a lamp! Do not leave a burning candle unattended! Imprudence can lead to a fire!

  • “The Great Bell” is made with great attention to detail. The windows, the ornaments on the walls, the roof with the tiles’ texture, and the clock’s design give it authenticity and originality.
  • Like all “Metal Time” DIY building sets, “The Great Bell” is made from sustainable stainless steel, food grade, and approved for consumer goods and toys.
  • Precise cutting of the set eliminates the possibility of cuts during the assembly process. The parts are precisely adjusted to each other and will not create problems when articulating.
  • Pleasant tactile sensations, strength, and brushed metal aesthetics favorably distinguish steel parts from wooden or plastic used in other building kits.
  • Convenient flat packaging made of eco-friendly recyclable cardboard combines the compactness and aesthetics of a status gift.
  • Each “Metal Time” model purchase receives a club badge, a thank you card and a unique number assigned to each model. Joining the “Metal Time” club opens up additional opportunities for each buyer.
  • “The Great Bell” DIY building kit is a great gift for connoisseurs of historical architecture and world attractions.

The process of assembling a model can be an exciting quest for a group of friends or family. A few hours of hard work will be rewarded with a pleasant souvenir, which can be used in various ways.

  1. Firstly, the model can be used as an interior decoration. A tall and elegant tower can take place on the desktop or shelf, emphasizing the owner’s status.
  2. Secondly, “The Great Bell” can be used as a clock. The electronic clock mechanism shows the exact time and turns the model into an extraordinary functional gadget.
  3. Thirdly, an electronic light source or candle can be placed in the tower’s interior, turning it into an original lamp, night light, or illuminated clock. They will take their rightful place in the recreation areas of your home.
  4. Fourth, the assembled model can become a toy. As part of a model city or building site in a nursery, it can become your child’s dominant figure and favorite device.
  5. And finally, “The Great Bell” can become part of your “Metal Time” collection dedicated to architecture, construction, and sightseeing. With the help of models from this collection, you can build an entire city by copying existing neighborhoods or creating your own project.

Each kit is used on a DIY basis.

To assemble the prototypes, neither engineering nor mechanical skills are needed. Diligence, determination, and focus are all that are needed. Our skilled engineers and professionals have ensured the best design and assembly of the components. Screwdrivers, glue, or soldering irons aren’t required in the assembly process. On the other hand, pliers are paramount in this process.

All our beautiful models are made of 304 stainless steel. This steel grade is the safest and most commonly used in the food industry. High-power laser cutting technology is used in our production lines. A focused laser beam provides a high concentration of energy and allows you to make seamless cutouts
of any material.

The etching process tends to be selective. The etching selectivity is based on the difference in the chemical reaction rates in different parts of the etched surface.
