Advantages Great fun to do and a great looking finished product
Disadvantages Very small pieces
NanoblocksA tiny look at the world.
Nanoblocks are a tiny building block, much like its more famous Danish counterpart. They were developed in Japan in 2008 and are made by a company called Kawada.
The main difference between Nanoblocks and Lego is, apart from size, is that where Lego is hollow underneath; Nanoblocks are solid and have a groove at the bottom. This allows you to place blocks on angles and to slide them along the bumps on top of other blocks to create a much wider variety of shape adding to the detail of the model.
Also Nanoblocks are built using a layer process so the shape you are building is solid.
To give you some idea of just how small these models are, think of a £1 coin standing on its edge and then imagine a grand piano that could almost hide behind it, a grand piano made up of 150 pieces, yes the smallest pieces are 4x4x5 millimetres.Detail
The product they have put up here is the grand piano but that is just one of a large range of kits that are available.
At the moment, in this country, there are three ranges, the mini series, the sights to see range and the advanced hobby range. There are many more models available worldwide but unfortunately not yet here, hopefully a more expanded range will come to this country over time.
The mini range is made up of animals, birds and musical instruments.
The sights to see range is what it says, being a range of famous buildings and sights from around the world.
There is just one model available in the hobby range at the moment, more on that later.
Sights to see.
Build yourself a collection of the world’s most famous buildings and sights, The Taj Mahal, The Eiffel Tower or maybe even the space shuttle, ready for lift off.
This range has between 230 and 580 pieces and of course the finished models are larger than the mini range, roughly twice as big.
Skill level for this range is between one and four
This range is packaged in attractive cardboard boxes.
