Watkins Glen International is an 11-turn, 3.4-mile road course in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. I remember getting pretty good at this course in Gran Turismo, and was especially proud of my handling "the boot" portion of the course, with its sharp climbing right turn and short straights. Regardless of my gaming history, WGI has had a tumultuous past, but things are looking up, as both NASCAR and IndyCar leagues are now racing there again. TinyMtn's model of Watkins Glen uses LiDAR data from 2015 from the USGS and aerial orthoimagery from 2011, before the recent repaving.
Model scale is 1:20000
Model covers an area approximately 0.6 by 1.2 miles
Altitudes covered: 1375' to 1721'
There is no vertical exaggeration applied to this model. This is a true-to-life scale model of a real place.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
