TinyMtn Navigator models are strongest and most affordable in the "White Natural Versatile Plastic" material. When you receive the model, there may still be Nylon dust on it from the printing process. Use either an airbrush, canned dust blower, or a soft old toothbrush to remove this dust. Do not get the "Versatile Plastic" material wet, and don't prime it or use any oil-based paints on it. You can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant.

All TinyMtn models have hollow bottoms - this is to save on weight, and thus cost. Many larger models also have extra flanges on their undersides to increase rigidity and strength. To make the model more solid, you should feel free to carefully pour resin into the bottom cavity, or glue a properly-sized slab of wood or another material into it.
These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please email@example.com
and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
