build your own gatway archBuild Your Own Gatway Arch Postcard

Architect Eero Saarinen designed this elegant modern monument to commemorate the role St. Louis played as the gateway to western settlement. Eight tiny rotating capsules in each leg of the arch transport visitors to an observation deck with stunning views of the Mississippi River and the city below. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2500 scale, approx. 3" tall. 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.
