Publisher's Description

The country's finest example of Federalist architecture, the U. S. Capitol Building represents a triumph of Neoclassical design. Inspired by the great buildings of ancient Rome, the Capitol also follows the architectural styles of England and France. The building possesses a complex history, encompassing major changes and additions with the growth and development of the country and its government. Despite the disparate visions of its many architects, the Capitol's ultimately harmonious design places it among the most beautiful and elegant seats of government in the world.
Model enthusiasts, fans of Neoclassical architecture, and history buffs of all ages will delight in putting together this replica of the U. S. Capitol Building. No prior experience is necessary for assembling the easy-to-make scale model. Detailed instructions and diagrams explain every step of the assembly process, from cutting, folding, and gluing the walls, porticos, and domes to adding such finishing touches as the Freedom Statue at the very top of the structure. A brief history chronicles the building's slow progress from the initial planning stages to its status as an international landmark.
