This model is an example of some of the most magnificent and iconic armor from ancient China. It was worn by the Dahan General, a group of some 1,500 guardians that belonged to the army of the secret service of the Ming Dynasty. Their task was to protect the emperor and the dynasty.
This Chinese (Ming) Armor Metal Model is assembled from two included 5.25" x 4.3" metal sheets.
Parts can be removed from the metal sheets by hand. However, using a pair of wire cutters is recommended. Tweezers make an ideal tool for bending or twisting the connection tabs to join the dragon parts together. No glue is required.
Kit contains 2 metal sheets and 8 printed instruction sheets.
Assembled Size: 4.4" H x 2.2" W x 1.1" D
Great gift for teens and adults who enjoy visiting the Chinese Gallery in the Robert and Katherine Jacobs Asian Wing of the Detroit Institute of Arts!
