The Tabernacle Model Kit
In the Bible, there are about 50 chapters just describing the tabernacle. Why does the Bible provide so much detail? One reason is that it is God's visual aid to explain what Jesus would do on the cross. When understood correctly, the tabernacle helps shed light on the work of Jesus.
How do you communicate its important message? Perhaps as you’ve read the description of the tabernacle you’ve found yourself getting lost in all the details. You've read the measurements and descriptions but still don’t have a good picture of what it was actually like.
The Tabernacle Model Kit gives you the opportunity to visualize the tabetnacle and understand its significance. Assembling this 328-piece kit can not only help expand your understanding of the tabernacle, but in the end will also give you an excellent tool to help teach others about the tabernacle. The parts are made of a durable plastic with rubber figures, making for a light-weight finished product. The pieces do not come painted and although it can be assembled as-is, for a more realistic model, painting is recommended (paints and brushes not included).
In our books, the meaning of the tabernacle is taught and this 1:90 scale model helps to bring clarity and understanding.
Instructions for assembly are included with the model. Please follow the Tabernacle Assembly & Painting Guide for more instructions on how to paint the model.
- Dimensions: 23" x 12" x 4" (59 x 31 x 10 cm)

I had a very challenging and wonderful experience putting the tabernacle together. we turned it into a family experience and everyone of us learned the amazing testimony that the tabernacle is about Jesus Christ.
the best model i have found anywhere
Thank you for this model. It’s fairly easy to put together. Ours remains unpainted. My kids enjoying moving the little pieces around. Thank you for this product
Road Map of Our Lives Symbolized by the Tabernacle of Moses
I have given away both models. One to a teacher from the Assemblies of God and the other to two teachers from Calvary Chapel (pastor & his wife). Of course I did all the assembling, painting and set up. All well worth it to see them so excited to have a teaching aid to share with their congregations. My hope is that these teachers will be better able to share the experiences of a walk with our Lord and remember that it is truly a road map of our lives. Thank You so much. In the Love of Christ, Richard Coder
Nice visual aid
It is a nice visual aid, the only issue is that it took us a while to build it. Also if you can include the paint and the glue with extra cost it would be better and more convenient. Thanks and God bless
Extremely pleased with tabernacle kit
I purchased the tabernacle kit and was extremely pleased with the quality. We chose to paint the kit and it is beautiful. When I displayed it at my Wednesday night bible class( for students, grades 2 and 3), they literally oohed and ahhhed at it. Granted, I had given it a huge build up, but their little eyes sparkled and now they know hands on the parts of the old tabernacle. Is is now on display for our entire congregatiion, and young and old gathered around it. I HIGHLY suggest painting it, with this precaution: When you spray the base with textured paint, DO NOT OVER SPRAY--too much causes build up and affects putting in the final large posts and frames. My other ADVICE IS TO DOWNLOAD THE INSTRUCTIONS ON ERECTING THE MODEL. They compliment those included in the shipment.And, yes, THE HIGH PRIEST TAKES SEVERAL HOURS TO PAINT. Good teaching and God bless! (Originally posted on 04/13/2009)
