scale model of solar system on logarithmic graph

Good evening ladies and gentlemen,

Any one know of a neat/tidy A4 size scale model of the Solar system.

I imagine there is one charted on varibly warped logarithmic graph paper

which would illustrate distance and Planet dimensions somewhat clearly.

Thanks,

Pedro

Personally, I hate using logarithmic scales. People don't work that way.

When I lecture on the Solar System and stellar neighborhood, I use scale models of the planets with properly scaled distances related to the size of the sun and planets.

It makes a far stronger impression to say the nearest star is 3 towns away than using a logarithmic scale where it would syill be in the room.
