Here is a constant-scale natural boundary map of Ida that folds to a decent replica of the asteroid. Map edges are Ida's major ridges.[attachment=16299:Ida_MaxRidge_post.jpg]
[EDIT] Here it is again with the photomosaic properly credited; apologies to M. Nyrtsov for my oversight.

I can convert the models to most popular formats.

Cutting the computer models in slices is an automatic process. I think it would be feasible to build such a model, the most difficult part would be cutting the slices from cardstock. If you have access to a laser cutter you will only have to glue them, using guide holes that I can add.

Actually I didn't use cardstock for Etna model... but I don't know the english name! rolleyes.gif They were sheets of gum, used to cover floors ("linoleum"?), 1 or 2 mm thick. Quite easy to cut using scissors, as they don't rip like cardstock.
