Retail Display Unit - Scale 1:20

When there isn’t the budget for a full colour, realistically detailed model, sometimes this monochromatic, white styled approach is a viable alternative. At 1:20 scale, this model is only 150mm high but with clear acrylic shelves and a matt white general finish, it provides an instantly understandable 3D representation of the unit. We’ve even been able to show the fine perforations in the curving roof panel.

 Perspex House Model – Scale 1:20












Produced for a major central heating system manufacturer, this set of three Perspex model houses was designed to illustrate the layout and main components of 3 different heating systems. The model houses were made from clear Perspex so that the viewer could see the position and relative sizes of all the major system components within the building walls. The models could be displayed individually or butted up against each other to create a “street” of typical houses. Whilst the houses are obviously a very stylized representation, the heating system hardware (boilers, cylinders, solar collectors, etc) is modeled to a fairly detailed level so that the units are instantly recognizable. Red and blue lines were used to indicate the hot and cold flow routes between the components.

Industrial Transformer Model – Scale 1:20

The client for this project was on site in India when we first sent him images of the finished model. His comments were... “Absolutely brilliant, I'm here in India with the Snr Project Manager who managed this project for 2 years and he can't believe it’s just a model”. We were particularly pleased with the results ourselves, especially as it was such a technically demanding project due to the need for a high level of accuracy and very authentic detailing. The model is made predominantly out of laser-cut acrylic components with very careful hand finishing and assembly, plus a final coat of paint of course. It was mounted on a square base with a Perspex cover (overall dimensions about 650mm high).

1:20 Sectional Model of House

Commissioned as a teaching aid, this cut away model was designed to illustrate typical construction techniques in a standard domestic building. The client’s aim was that the model could be used instead of site visits to clarify some fairly basic methods of construction. The model included details such as wall ties, staircase construction, and even roofing materials.

1:20 Model of Information Point

This model was used to help illustrate the proposed design of a new information booth. It had removable security screens and faithful representation of all the material finishes. Even the illumination was a scaled down representation of the proposed lighting system.
