3D Metal Model: Kinkakuji

Last weekend I built another 3D metal model, this time of Kinkakuji, the Japanese golden pavilion in Kyoto.

This one contained 3 golden metal sheets for building the model (usually you get 1 or 2 sheets). As far as building went, this was one of the easier models I've done. I did mess up and thought I'd put the phoenix on the room facing the wrong direction so I 'fixed' it. I thought the outbuilding was the front, and once I'd bent and unbent the flaps once I didn't want to mess with them again for fear of breaking them off.

Like the other models I've done this one looks incredible finished. The real Kinkakuji is even more beautiful:
