Review-In-Progress: Metal Earth Drum Set Build (Part 2)

Today, I will be tackling the rest of the bass drum and the floor tom part of the Metal Earth: Drum Set model kit!


The bass drum only need the stand that goes in the front so I didn’t have as much trouble as I did. Like I said before, these Metal Earth kits takes time and patience because the sheets are so finicky and fragile; one wrong move could easily ruin your build.

I finally figured out how to put those metal bands for aesthetics on the drums; however, I opted to not put them at all because it is just a pain. Maybe I will put them on late when I have all the pieces together.  To be honest, I prefer not to have them on.

The floor tom was probably the easiest part I have done in this kit so far. My experience from the previous parts definitely helped when assembling the rest; you learn as you go.

Again, a permanent marker helped a lot on forming the cylindrical shape of the floor tom body. I used a slightly larger marker to shape it and it worked perfectly. Thanks Sharpie! Give me money! Just kidding, but all kidding aside use this technique when building this kit. It is a life saver!

I elected to forgo the aesthetic band here as well to save time and frustrations. It breaks my heart but, I have to do my math homework!
