Ford model T
Who doesn't like retro cars? These machines certainly have some charm and mystique!
At the beginning of the 20th century a man named Henry Ford was a symbol, a master of a new era, a self-made man whose invention changed the world. Ford Motor Company produced millions of copies of the Ford model T from 1908 to 1927. Henry Ford, according to many, was the one who "put America on wheels" by making new cars relatively affordable for middle-class Americans.
This model can be considered as a 3D puzzle that is an exact copy of the legendary Ford Model T automobile. The model is made of a unique combination of materials such as cardboard and foamed polyethylene. Thus, the assembled model won't bend or break down and that makes the model very accessible to children. For example, such a car would be a great gift for a young collector or modelist as the first model that, of course, will remain in favor for a long time.
The model could be easily assembled without glue or scissors. It is provided with language independent, colorful step-by-step instructions.
“The Ford Model T was the first automobile built by various countries simultaneously since they were being produced in Walkerville, Canada and in Trafford Park, Greater Manchester, England starting in 1911 and were later assembled in Germany, Argentina, France, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Brazil, Mexico, and Japan, as well as several locations throughout the US.”
