You can be forgiven for not hearing about Mt. Logan. That is, unless you're Canadian, in which case, at 5959m/19552', it's the highest mountain in your country and the second-highest peak in North America. But in case you're not Canadian, hidden behind Mt. St. Elias, at the corner between Alaska and Yukon, in a remote and very cold part of the world, stands a monument of rock 3.5km (2 miles) high, 7km (5mi) wide, and over 20km (13mi) long. This is Mt. Logan. The first ascent was in 1925, when an international team took over 65 days to summit and return to the nearest town. We've chosen to release this relatively unknown mountain in the Explorer series, giving you the ability to do the unthinkable: put Mt. Logan head-to-head against other massive and more well-known mountains to see which is truly the biggest.
The Explorer series of TinyMtn models is designed to break our usual impression of mountains. We generally see mountains one at a time, from a distance, and from the ground. While all TinyMtn models give you a fresh perspective on any one peak, the Explorer series presents mountains in identical scale, and shifted up so that sea level is at the bottom of the base. Thus, when you set two Explorer models next to each other, you will immediately notice which is taller, which rises more from its base, which is more massive, and so on. Plus, all Explorer models come in full color, making them just that much more realistic.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Natural Versatile Plastic" 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 "Versatile Plastic" 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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
