Rendering of the four sizes. In bright copper sarsens, rusty iron bluestones and grass with numbers base. More variation examples here:

1,000th scale is 39mm square and T2 is 6.3mm high (1½” ¼”)
200th scale is 195mm square T2 31mm high (7⅔” 1¼”)
76th scale 514mm square T2 83mm high (20¼” 3¼”)
35th scale is 1116mm square T2 180mm high (43¾” 7″)
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.

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.

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.

To compare the sizes of the Stonehenge model full set. These are renders from the models, comp’d in Photoshop.
- 76th scale model miniature is 8.3cm or 3.3 inches high (T2) x 59cm or 23.2 inches in diameter.
- 35th scale model replica is 18cm or 7 inches high (T2) x 128cm or 50.4 inches in diameter.
- The real thing is 632cm or 20 feet 8 inches high (T2) x 4480cm or 147 feet in diameter – around 10% further out than the outer stone circle to contain the fallen stones, too.

Long, long ago Merlin built Stonehenge using giants. Here is the clear photographic evidence. ‘The camera never lies.’

So, I thought I’d mock up a fake view of the prototype model on grass, with fingers for scale. It reminds me that, of course, Stonehenge was built by giants. Some say under the instruction of Merlin, others just to play skittles.
