I need a model made to scale 1:5000 of a property measuring 170 hectars.

I am not too concerned about the material, but rather on having a fair representation of the elevation changes inside the property.

The model must be made 1:5000 because I have other pieces (paper & magnets) that will be tried on the model to study different positions/configurations, and these pieces are already scaled 1:5000.

Final product would be shipped to Calgary, AB.

The following coordinates define the land in google maps:
19.6327545,-90.6633959
19.6329022,-90.662391
19.6329656,-90.6595968

If my calculations are correct, at 1/5000 scale, would this only be about 1 square foot completed? We have done some large scale topography models, see the image below. Do you have a topography map with elevations or would that be up to us to secure?

I did not get your image, please try posting it again or include a link?

Yes, finished product will be around 12" x 18". This scale is because I have other pieces I will be trying out on the model that are scaled to 1:5000.

But I have received a number of comments about the small scale I am requesting and I am starting to consider to scale up of the pieces I already have. But I guess the largest I could go is 1:2500.

I have some data from google earth that imported into Sketchup, not sure if such data would be usable with your software?

I would be interested in quoting this job.
I can send pics of my work.
