THE GREAT BELL

MT077 Available
Construction of the tower began on 28 September 1843. Elizabeth Tower, originally referred to as the Clock Tower, but more popularly known as Big Ben, was raised as a part of Charles Barry's design for a new Palace of Westminster, after the old palace was largely destroyed by fire on 16 October 1834. Although Barry was the chief architect of the neo-gothic palace, he turned to Augustus Pugin for the design of the Clock Tower, which resembles earlier Pugin designs, including one for Scarisbrick Hall in Lancashire.

Prototype history

The main clock tower in the most influential country of Europe, which ringing of bells the whole world listens to and the entire establishment checks the clock. Worthy of many mentions. Cinema, literature, billions of selfies, tens of billions of references. Undoubtedly, the Elizabeth Tower, the most recognizable part of Westminster Abbey and a symbol of London and the UK in general, has both cultural and technical value. One of the tallest clock towers in the world, with a height of 96 meters, was built in 1859. It has a unique clockwork that still works today and six bells, the main one weighing 13.7 tons and called Big Ben. Often the tower itself is also called that. The Elizabeth Tower is a worthy object for modeling and collecting.

PROTOTYPE HISTORY
HISTORY OF THE MODEL FORMATION

The designers at Metal Time have created “The Great Bell” DIY model based on the proportions and appearance of London’s famous clock tower.

Like the original, the model contains many details that will delight fans of independent technical creativity. And yes, it shows the time due to the electronic clock mechanism. It can also be turned into a night light and you can decorate the bedroom with it.

The time spent on assembling the model will not be wasted.

Features, benefits

“The Great Bell” DIY model is a stable clock tower prototype that can be used for a variety of purposes.

"The Great Bell" is equipped with a platform that ensures its stability. Many architectural details of the real neo-Gothic tower are reflected in the details of the model. Therefore, its assembly is associated with a small digression into the history of world architecture.

The main component of the tower is the clock. With the electronic clock mechanism, the clock shows the real time and is powered by batteries (not included), which can be easily replaced.

In addition, “The Great Bell” can be turned into a table lamp or night light by placing an electrical light source such as an LED candle (not included) or another light source inside.

Attention! Be extremely careful when using open flame sources as a lamp! Do not leave a burning candle unattended! Imprudence can lead to a fire!

"The Great Bell" is made with great attention to detail. The windows, the ornaments on the walls, the roof with the texture of the tiles, and the design of the clock give it authenticity and originality.
