This Akwa Ibom, Nigeria relief model was fabricated as 10 interlocking panels. The models molded fiberglass panels are reinforced with fiberglass supports (joists) every 24". The completed model is 4 meters x 5 meters. The aerial / satellite photography was a particular challenge on this model because there was no cloud free imagery of the coastal area. By combining multiple images and photoshop work, we were able to create a continuous cloud free surface.
In the background of the first image, the in-production Cross River State, Nigeria fiberglass solid terrain model can be seen.
Most of our relief models are ready to ship in 2-3 weeks. For a large one like this - out of fiberglass, plan on 6-8 weeks production time.
