Holes

This page is going to document the re-creation of the Micronaut Prototype Micro City sets.  These sets were pictured in early Micronaut promotional catalogs that were packaged with the toys.  However, no example of these prototypes is known to exist.

LaserMego has decided to help the Micropolis Embassy in recreating these sets!

The first tiny step was to laser cut a series of holes around 5mm to see which was the best fit. 


The holes had a drawn dimensions of 5.10 mm, 5.05 mm, 5.00 mm, 4.95 mm and 4.90 mm. 
Since the laser cuts away some of the material, a drawn hole of 4.95 mm seem to fit the best.

Next we need better pictures of the prototype sets!  If you have an early catalog and a scanner, please send me a high-res picture of the prototypes.  (My email should be in the upper left corner of the page, in the "Welcome" box.)
