Topographical Models and Maps
Modeling foam ideal for topographic models due to its consistent cell structure
Solid Terrain Models (STM) of Fillmore, California has created highly accurate topographical models and maps using our LAST-A-FOAM® FR-7100 Multi-use Core and Modeling Board Series. These models and maps are widely considered to be the best available.
STM appreciates the consistent cell structure and density of the FR-7100 products, which allows them to cut models with CNC routers easily and accurately. The FR-7100 material’s smooth, uniform, grain-free surface makes it very easy to paint completed models or apply other surface finishes. STM also depends on the long-term dimensional stability of our sheets – which don’t warp, twist or bow – to keep models flat and true.
Several examples of STM’s work can be seen in the Hall of Explorers at the National Geographic Society’s Washington, D.C. headquarters.
