These are rendered models. I’m just printing and putting together the prototypes. There are several variations to pick from, including colours of stones, base maps and sizes.
This is, for the time being, a rough guide to the possible variations. At the end of the Kickstarter, you will be sent a survey where you can decide what your configuration will be. A mix of material, patina, a combination between sarsen and bluestone or the same, which maps, which sizes.

Aberystwyth University did some computer simulations of the last ice age.
I couldn’t get the flv files to play nice nor the kmls so converted and uploaded to Youtube.

I’m fascinated with this one stone, Stone 59. (But, fickle is what fickle decides to be flavour of the moment.)
When Stone 59 fell, it broke into three major parts: the bottom, turtleback a; middle b and tenon c. I guess the other chunks, particularly the right, top corner of the middle chunk (59b) and the lower right corner of the bottom (59a) have been taken. Perhaps there is a flaw in the sarsen down that side.

Barney Harris has worked out the man-hours needed to craft the stones. Fabulous stuff. I see that it is the lintels that took the longest. I hadn’t thought of that.
They have six sides to dress where the trilithon’s uprights have a back that is left rough the buried side that wouldn’t have had much attention, though the inside face would be polished smooth, the two walls wouldn’t, as they show lots or remaining working lines.

It’s the details that make these models of Stonehenge really pop. And the rusted patina brings them out. All I do is dip the cold cast iron models into vinegar and salt and after a few days lightly, rub down the model with my fingers, The grease from my skin makes the raised parts of the model sing, while the recessed depths stay rusty.

Some more renders in light rust at 76th scale. 8.3cm or 3.3 inches high (T2) x 59cm or 23.2 inches in diameter. The base will not be as thick as this.
