Item details

The Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of Rome, Italy. Built of concrete and stone, it was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. It is the largest amphitheatre in the world. The Colosseum could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology.

This famous Roman landmark model is made so that you can play with four separate pieces and then join them into one structure.

Yes, we make custom models - either you want a classic "Cut & Glue!" model kit or an innovative pop-up card we can do it! We have previously made custom models for promotional industry, museums, private foundations, schools and collectors. Our production possibilities allow to make a custom model for you in any quantity starting from just one to thousands of copies. We use digital, offset and screen printing, die-cut and kiss-cut scoring and cutting, cold and hot gluing, embossing, foil fusing and stamping and using the best designer papers and cardboards along with a long list of accessories to create a very special model just for you, your company or private event!

We do wholesale as well! If you are interested to carry our kits in your shop please convo us with your details and requests. Getting in touch and talking to us is rewarding!

We know that our models are much loved by teachers and students for creative classroom paper craft activities. If you are a teacher or any other person responsible for purchasing supplies for your school, college or any other educational establishment and select at least 10 single kits you may claim a 25% DISCOUNT at the checkout by filling the special instructions field and we will refund you the difference. If you are a keen architecture and paper craft enthusiast, a history buff or if you are sourcing for an activity to spend a quality time with your family and friends and want to buy at least 10 kits you can get a 20% discount by using a coupon code 10FOR20 at the checkout.

We ship kits in beautiful kraft envelopes with our company name stamped and a minimum necessary product information attached. We can add a gift message on your behalf. Just write in the gift message text when placing your order.

Paper is sturdy enough but definitely not thick, it's easy to score and cut with a hobby knife (X-Acto or similar). It's not so easy to use scissors as some details are quite small and delicate so we recommend cutting with a knife. We recommend using a white glue (PVA, Elmer's or similar). You can use paper strips or ear picks for gluing tools.

We recommend our kits for anyone from 13 years, but some 10 year olds have done well, too. There is nothing wrong with starting earlier just patience and motor skills are usually better with larger kids. Probably these pre-cut models are better for kids and generally beginners in paper model building since they contain less details and no cutting is needed - just folding and gluing: Mayan Pyramid Eiffel Tower Golden Gate Bridge New York Skyscraper

All orders are trackable except FoxeTroo kits and postcard models which are shipped through STANDARD (non-trackable) service. Please use the tracking number we provided to track your order through Royal Mail website.
