Product Description

The Great Smoky Mountains are a part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, themselves a region of the Appalachian Mountains, running nearly the length of the East Coast of the US. Half a million acres in North Carolina and Tennessee were set aside eighty years ago to form Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the park is now is the most-visited in the National Park Service system.

This model covers 83 square miles of the Central Smokies just south of Gatlinburg, containing US Route 441 over the Newfound Gap, nearby Mount Le Conte, and Clingman's Dome, the highest peak in the park. Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina is the highest mountain in the Eastern USA, but is only 40' higher than Clingman's Done, and all three are over 300' higher than Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, at 6288'. Though not studded with alpine peaks like many of our other models, this piece carefully captures the countless ridges and ravines blanketing the range, amounting to a texture unique to this remarkable place.

Model scale is 1:194700
Model covers an area approximately 9.1 by 9.1 miles
Altitudes covered: 1585' to 6643'
There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.

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 try to accommodate your request.
