Build Your Own Chrysler Building Postcard

Availability: In stock

This quintessential art deco skyscraper is an icon of the extravagance and dynamism of New York in the Roaring 20s. Designed by William Van Alen for auto tycoon Walter Chrysler, the tower features stylized hood ornaments, wheels, and hubcaps. Its height was altered several times in a well-publicized race with the Bank of Manhattan Trust building. The needle-like spire was concealed until the last stage of construction to put it over the top to become the world’s tallest building in 1930.

DIY 1:3000 scale miniature paper model, about 4 inches tall finished. Designed by Matt Bergstrom. Published by Wurlington Bros. Press. Unfinished postcard measures 6.75 x 4.7 inches and can be mailed with standard letter postage.
