EARTH MODEL

My first small Earth Model is shown in the following series of images. After a number of trial and error attempts I decided that the landmasses cut from a 28 cm vinyl globe fitted together, most effectively, on a sphere of 15 cm diameter. I used stainless steel spheres for my model making which were available in a range of diameters from some garden centres, where they are used for garden ornamentation.
