This is a scale model of the greater Uinta Range in Northern Utah. It starts at the Agassiz-Hayden-Kletting ridge on the far West, includes Kings Peak (the highest peak in the range), and ends just shy of the Uinta River valley on the East. This not a square model like most TinyMtn models; another difference is that this model contains 2x vertical exaggeration. It was made on request of a nearby outdoor enthusiast, but is now offered to anyone who appreciates these majestic and little-known Utah peaks.
Model scale is 1:250000
Model covers an area approximately 35.1 by 21.3 miles
Altitudes covered: 8097' to 13534'
This model was built with vertical exaggeration of 1:2. This means that the elevation is more steep and rugged in the model than in real life.

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.
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 do our best to fulfill your request.
