This is a 3D printed model of Colorado's high country, home of all 58 of her ranked "Fourteeners" (mountains over 14,000' elevation) from http://www.14ers.com. Each peak is marked with a 2mm hole, the perfect size for a round toothpick that you can place there once you summit. Download Malcom R's PDF of the 58 flags here. There is no better way to mark your achievements and get inspired to finish all 58. Be safe out there, but never stop climbing!
Model scale is 1:1240000
Model covers an area approximately 193 by 233.5 miles
Altitudes covered: 4653' to 14433'
This model was built with vertical exaggeration of 1:4. 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.
