That's brilliant! Was that done on a PC?

Kicking that idea down the road a bit, you could make a fantastic map for kriegsspiel or a variation of it.
I'm afraid I was responsible only for the putting-it-together part (that still took me like two hours :D - now the map occasionally hangs on my wall, but I take it away often for book reading), I didn't draw the map itself. But As I write in the video description, I found an SVG map of middleearth, which is awesome, because SVG (the picture format used on Wikipedia) is a vector graphics format, which unlike normal [bitmap - sic!] formats doesn't describe what color is on what pixel, but it describes "lines and shapes", therefore, you can ZOOM a vector-graphics made picture infinitely and you still get 100% quality and definition (=infinite zoom picture quality). Like when you zoom a webpage or a text file :) (you never lose the quality!)

Here! :)
you can try zooming there yourself. I mean, before I printed it, I made from it a high-resolution bitmap picture first...

I'd like to put together a few large maps of some of the continents. Big detailed ones upon a ply base from different ages throughout history. Then stare at them.

I made myself a map of Middle-Earth today :D
You've earned the goodwill of Manwë, young hobbit. He'll be sending the eagles your way in a day or two. Nowadays he uses Google maps to track you by satellite. Cheaper & less invasive.

Not to mention not having to shovel the guano giant eagles leave behind.

Got my hands on some strong cheddar from West Scotland. Knocking off clumps with my knife like a pro. Love it. Trying not to think of the calories.

Edit: contains little crunchy bits which I like in a mature cheese.
