This model will require more than one sitting to build it. We advise to pause between different stages as you work, especially when you come to gluing. The white glue softens the paper and it may lead to misshapen parts if you do not allow them to dry well before proceeding further with assembling. Click here to watch our paper model building tips.

A FEW LINES ABOUT THIS LANDMARK
The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China to protect the Chinese states and empires against the raids and invasions of various neighbors. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century and later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall. Archaeological surveys show that the entire wall with all of its branches measure out to be 21,196 km (13,171 mi).
