Is anyone selling scale model moons? Ie. Io, Iapetus etc?

The moons in our solar system are remarkably diverse and interesting. My google-fu is failing me, but I was hoping to get a set of models of moons to admire. Anyone making these?

The only one I've seen was a standard (Earth's) moon globe.

There are some glue-it-yourself paper models of the planets (text is German). I'd imagine that it wouldn't be too hard to adapt their design to use other 3D models.

This site has Jupiter's moons listed as "coming soon."

"Planetary globes" seems to be a useful search term.

Solar system planets and moons - they're small models, and are to a logarithmic scale, but there are a good nine moons there (plus planets), including Io, Iapetus, etc.
