Praying Mantis


Stag Beetle


Delve into the amazing world of bugs with five predators you can build!

All Metal Earth Bug models start out as a flat sheet of metal with laser-cut designs. All you have to do is pop out the pieces, follow the directions, and put them together.

Dragonfly - With multifaceted eyes and impressive wings, creativity hovers as you put him together.

Praying Mantis - His stance gave him the name, though Praying Mantis is a fierce predator in the bug world. Two claws are set to strike!

Scorpion - With two claws for pinching and one heck of a stinger for a tail, he's one fine fellow for creating.

Stag Beetle - Massive mandibles ready for a fight, this guy demands respect and gets it.

Tarantula - Too fierce to ignore, his fangs filled with venom... tarantulas mean business. Luckily, he's made of metal.

With amazing details and fun facts for learning, each Metal Earth Bug turns model building into hands-on learning adventure.

    Love the details!
    Posted 4/30/2014 by Scott Sherlock

    I purchased 4 of the 6 bugs in the collection. I put the Stag beetle together. I am amazed at the details! The metal is a little thin but that allows for slight adjustments as you are assembling and positioning for display. Model is very solid after assembly, just about everyone picks it up when they see it. Almost all say,'You put this together?' I look forward to working through the rest of the collection.
