Yey! My 3D model of Tintern Abbey has finally been accepted by Google Earth.
I’ve been submitting it, off and on, for a few years now but without success. The model, designed in Sketchup, has hitherto been too complicated to satisfy Google’s standards. After many compromises on the details I squeezed the file down to about a tenth of its original size and it squeezed under the bar. The arches are a bit angular now but at least it’s there for all to see.
To view the model you need to download Google Earth. Make sure the “3D Buildings” layer is ticked.
