wdc metrorail car cardBuild Your Own Washington D.C. Metrorail Car Postcard

Washington D.C.'s rail transit system opened in 1976 and is the second-busiest subway system in the U.S. The Metro has over 1,100 train cars and 106 miles of track. Architect Harry Weese designed the distinctive concrete vaulted ceilings of the Metro subway stations and platforms. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:160 scale, approx. 5.5" long. 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.
