Instead of going for accuracy in terms of colour, this print was made to sit on top of a light base so the detailing would be illuminated. To do this Minas Tirith was printed in white at 150% scale, a process that took around 39 hours.
The finished print is 180 x 200 x 250 millimetres and the scale and light effect can be better seen in this short video.
To make your own, start with the files for Minas Tirith itself on Thingiverse. If you’d like to make a version that lights up, you’ll also need to print out a base (also available on Thingiverse) and you’ll have to wire in some kind of light source from there.
