Empire State Building Postcard--Build Your Own New York
For nearly 50 years the tallest building in the world, the Empire State was superlative from its beginning. During its construction, the true height of 1250 feet was kept secret to outdo the builders of the Chrysler Building being built at the same time. The spire was designed as a dirigible docking port, though it was never used for that purpose. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:4000 scale, approx. 4.5" tall. All the cards in the Build Your Own New York series are mailable postcards, with space on the reverse for a stamp and 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. There is also a Build Your Own Chicago Series.
