build your own lincoln memorial postcardBuild Your Own Lincoln Memorial Postcard

Designed by Henry Bacon in the form of a Greek Doric temple, the memorial was dedicated in 1922 by President Warren G. Harding. The colossal sculpture of a seated Lincoln by Daniel Chester French in the interior is nearly 20 feet high. The wide steps of the memorial facing the Washington Monument have been the scene of many historic rallies and events. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:1500 scale, approx. 1.5" wide. It is mailable, with space on the reverse for a stamp, address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams.  Build Your Own Chicago and Build Your Own New York series are also available.
