What this clay model taught me was the real complexities of complex craters and the general saucer-like shape that they possess. The neat thing about these models is that you can set them up with lighting that can be adjusted to simulate what is seen at various lunar phases and practice sketching when the weather does not permit sketching at the telescope.
Here's another stereographic picture of the model seen more obliquely:

It is great to see you back again.
Congratulations on you LPOD posting.
Now how do I get my eyes uncrossed after fusing those images into 3D? Just kidding, I used the late Marty Feldman's old trick.
You work great wonders with the modeling clay on old luna.

Thanks for the warm welcome back! And sorry for any eye injury this project may have induced!

what a nice project.
It reminded my to my older books from around 1900 where
anybody made crater modells too and made "fake" photos from them. I think they used flour powder.
