You 'da man! I was just lamenting (see my comment on the original model) about not having that notch, and here you are with one the whole time! I wasted 7 1/2 hours printing the non-notched one, but if this little guy prints like I think it will, it's worth it. The one I have now is really useless as far as mounting the balcony to the body goes.

If I use your balcony, the existing optics should still fit on top, correct? The optics printed out very nicely, and I'd like to keep them if I could. The optics 2b seem to be solid. I'm assuming it's to be used with colorless filament, but I like the original a bit better.

Thanks again for putting that simple, VERY necessary notch in the model!

Thanks for the comments.

It is to the same scale as the original.

Thought this was a really nice model but was benmused to find that the balcony didn't have a recess.

Hope it was useful.

Hey, I saw this too late. I have been printing the lighthouse from the main hexagonal thing at 0.9 scale, and it didn't fit. I am going to print yours now. Can you tell me if these are at the same scaling as the original model?

HUGE thanks for the recess added to the balcony! I tried to edit a recess with Tinkercad, but just could not get it right, then I saw your remix.
