Product Description

Situated in the Andes on the Western edge of Mendoza Province in Argentina, Aconcagua (at 6961m / 22,837') is the the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western hemispheres, and a popular destination for climbers from around the world.

This model encompasses the entire normal climbing route: all the way up the Rio Horcones (Superior), past the mighty western slope rising 2800m (9200') from the top of Playa Chica, through the series of developed camps, and up the northern route. At the south edge of this model are Cerro Tolosa and the Confluencia camp, named for the confluence of the two branches of Rio Horcones. Those branches surround Cerro Mirador, a subpeak visible in front of Aconcagua from viewpoints all the way up the Horcones Valley from the park entrance. The northern portion of the map shows Cerro Cuerno and Zurbriggen, the latter named after the Swiss guide who, in 1897, first summited Aconcagua. On the western edge you'll find Cerro Rico and portions of the Vacas Valley, including the valley leading up to Plaza Argentina, a camp for hikers attempting the eastern route.

Model scale is 1:303200
Model covers an area approximately 22.7 by 22.7 km
Altitudes covered: 3123m to 6961m
There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "White Strong and Flexible" and "Sandstone" materials. This model is in "White Strong and Flexible." When you receive the model, there may still be Nylon dust on it from the printing process. Use either an airbrush, canned dust blower, or a soft old toothbrush to remove this dust. Do not get the "White Strong and Flexible" material wet, and don't prime it or use any oil-based paints on it. You can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here.

The "Frosted Detail" material will show more detail, but is semi-transparent and has an uneven surface texture when unpainted (due to the orientation of the model when Shapeways prints it). It may show up feeling a little greasy and with small crystals in crevasses. Clean those off by soaking the model in warm (but not hot) soapy water and brushing with an old toothbrush. To get the surface to an even matte finish, spray with a few light coats of sandable primer (white automotive primer works), and then do a baking soda grit-blast.

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 try to accommodate your request.
