Build a Precision Model Solar System

Build a Precision Model Solar System

Each weekly issue of Build a Precision Mechanical Solar System comes with the components you need to build a modern interpretation of a classical orrery- a fully accurate, working model of the solar system as we know it today.

Electrically powered, this attractive and completely individual piece is built to last and will become a family heirloom.

In addition to your beautiful orrery, the 20 page, full-colour magazine includes stunning space images, in-depth features and the essential instructions for constructing, calibrating and using your model solar system.
