Here's a fun one we can all try at home - a small, fairly simple LEGO globe with building instructions available online. You do still have to make sure you put the parts together in a way that they will stay, but that shouldn't be too difficult. They're in a normal .gif image file too, so you can even see them without having to deal with CAD and such. What's particularly elegant about this globe is that it's at a small enough scale to be easy to build, but at a large enough scale that the rounded effect works using only standard LEGO bricks without any of the more precise LEGO plates.
Some larger LEGO globes with continents and such were featured here last month.
