AISC Steel Sculpture model
Posted by on August 25, 2008 at 6:43 PM. | No Comments »

I was impressed by the model of the AISC steel sculpture shown in the August 2008 issue.  However, metal structural shapes are available through the hobby world.  They may not be exact copies of the AISC shapes, but could be close enough.  Small items are available from a number of sources, such as:

www.specialshapes.com

www.galtran.com/ScaleNutsandBolts/ScaleN
utsandBoltsProductPage.htm

www.smallparts.com

 

These sources along with others such as from hobby retailer Walthers (www.walthers.com) could possible make it easier for others without the challenge of milling exact shapes.
