Product Description

Longs Peak and Mt. Meeker, known as the Twin Peaks, are two of the most prominent mountains on the Colorado Front Range, and are easily visible from Denver and Longmont. Only Longs Peak is over 14,000', and is the only fourteener in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Rocky Mountains, really a chain of several ranges stretching from Canada to New Mexico, was uplifted between 80 and 55 million years ago, and have been eroded to varying degrees since then. Depending on where you stand, you can be on rocks 3 billion year old, or fresh talus from yesterday's rock fall.

This model features Longs Peak, Mt. Meeker, and Pagoda Mt. summits, but also nearby Mt. Lady Washington and Storm Peak, one on each side of the Boulder Field. The model includes North past Granite Pass and most of Battle Mountain, and to the west Chiefs Head Peak, The Spearhead, Frozen Lake, and Black Lake. On the south side of the mountains, you'll find Snowbank Lake, Keplinger Lake, and the long South face of Meeker down to 10600', including Dragon's Egg Rock. Even with the smallest print, people familiar with the Loft route will notice Ships Prow, Chasm Lake, Lamb's Slide, Loft Couloir, The Beaver and The Notch.

Model scale is 1:37600
Model covers an area approximately 3.5 by 3.5 miles

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "White Strong and Flexible" and "Sandstone" materials. This model is in "White Strong and Flexible." 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 "White Strong and Flexible" 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. Read more about this popular material here.

The "Frosted Detail" material will show more detail, but is semi-transparent and has an uneven surface texture when unpainted (due to the orientation of the model when Shapeways prints it). It may show up feeling a little greasy and with small crystals in crevasses. Clean those off by soaking the model in warm (but not hot) soapy water and brushing with an old toothbrush. To get the surface to an even matte finish, spray with a few light coats of sandable primer (white automotive primer works), and then do a baking soda grit-blast.

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 contact us and we'll try to accommodate your request.
