I want to rebuild my grandparents' house... in miniature

I have a deeply nostalgic love for my grandparents' former home, a generic but beloved split level they lived in from the 1950s to mid 2000s. As an artist and crafter with an obsessive love for details, I have long noodled with the idea of making an incredibly accurate recreation of the house in miniature... but I struggle with where to start. Architectural models, dollhouses? What is the best route forward? [more inside]

Finding nets for theme park attractions.

School teacher looking for 1 page nets to create 3D models of theme-park attractions. E.g. A roller coaster, log flume, Ferris wheel, runaway train. I've been looking on the internet and draw a blank. Any help would be appreciated. Students will be able to design their own images, and the more able challenged to adapt the model. Internet links preferable, but if you know of a book, then please let me know. Thank you.
