Jimbo; The globe was coppied from another builder on brickshelf. I didn't copy it exactly because i didn't like the way it was built. The stand is my own idea and the globe spins on 4 x 4 spinner bricks. I did create an lDraw file of it as I took it apart. This project was around for about a year before I took it apart to build the grinch model. My Grinch model is currently at The Henry Ford Museum along with my Polar Express model and a snowman model.
