Product Description
Driving North on I-93 through New Hampshire is a treat: first the foothills, beautiful lakes, and endless trees, which give way to steep rock slopes and towering mountains, all leading to the reward of Franconia Notch. At 5249', Mt. Lafayette is on your right, and on your left, the massive granite face of Cannon Mountain, once home to Old Man of the Mountain. Around the corner, on a special one-lane interstate highway, is Cannon Mountain Ski Area. This 3d printed model of these features goes as far South as Mt. Liberty, Mt. Flume, and Big and Little Coolidge Mtns, and Kinsman Mtn through Mt. Wolf. The color image is from a January, 2018 satellite photo from ESA's Sentinel-2 satellite.

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.

Model scale is 1:100000
Model covers an area approximately 9.4 by 9.4 miles
Altitudes covered: 875' to 5249'
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.

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 tinymtnbiz@gmail.com and we'll do our best to fulfill your request.
