//Some new images of the (almost) finished model

It's Simple, could use a little tweaking, but works great!
(I did not upload the Mars STL to the derivate, please get it from the original project)

The images show the globe (highly exagerated version) with the first color coating and camera flash, so please excuse the lousy pictures for now.


Diameter of globe: 6cm
1)Ignore the plastic scraps on the images
2) Print.
3) Assemble.
4) Color.
5) Poke tacks into a 6cm globe.
6) Put Globe into holder.
7) Done!

...if you can't print support material, you may want to print the bow standing on it's arch, so the tack/pin holders stay clear.
Also making them a bit more rigid might be a good idea depending on your printer & material.

PS: Measuring and modeling the tack/pin took the longest :-) I even modeled it unsimetrical as all tacs seem to be a bit squished.
