Custom-built planning tool for Logistics division.
This multi-layered display is a custom-built planning tool for the Ministry of Defence Logistics team. They got in touch with a sketch design (literally a very rough sketch) and asked if it was something we could build. The idea was to create 4 vertically stacked transparent maps showing all the UK MOD bases so that the team could assess varying logistics routes by linking different depots both horizontally and vertically with colour-coded string. Our solution was this aluminium framed design that can be easily bolted together but also “flat-packs” into the white base for storage when not in use (which you can see in the inset pic above).
Aircraft model for exhibition display.
This eye catching model of a fire fighting “water bomber” plane was commissioned to hang above a stand at a trade show event. We particularly enjoyed this project, especially when we reached the stage of adding the Canadair red and yellow livery which really brought the aircraft to life. The model had a 1.5m wingspan so for easier transportation we designed it in 3 separate sections – fuselage, wings and tail plane – that could be easily assembled on site using just 3 bolts. The model was made almost completely from balsa wood so was extremely light. If we’d fitted model engines and radio control gear we could have flown it out of the workshop!
Mobile Display models for ground breaking construction product.
This is the latest batch of display models for Concrete Canvas, a rapidly expanding South Wales company with an innovative construction product. The models are designed to help their sales team demonstrate the speed and simplicity of the company’s unique, concrete based fabric which comes on a roll but sets solid when soaked with water. The models feature the actual product formed over simulated earthworks. Each model was supplied with a purpose-built flight case (shown in main image) to protect it in transit and for storage when not in use.
Flat-pack displays with flight cases.
This is the third time we’ve made a set of clear Perspex houses for global real estate consultants Knight Frank. The models are used at promotional events around the country where they are filled with varying items and the public are offered the opportunity to win prizes by guessing the quantity inside the house. The models can be flat-packed into the flight cases (shown in one of the pics above) for shipping to different venues and can then be easily assembled on site – the walls and roof panels simply slot together. The windows are laser-engraved, as is the Knight Frank logo which was then coloured by inlaying red paint.
Exhibition display for “Jumping Pillows”.
The client for this project “Jumping Pillows”, who specialise in installing inflatable play areas, asked us to design and build an eye catching model for use at exhibition events around the UK. We based this model on one of their recent installations and gave it strong colours and realistic detail so that it really draws the eye. The fencing and picnic tables give a good sense of scale but we also supplied some clear silhouette figures that the client could place on the model as an additional detail if required (you can see these better if you click on the two smaller pics above).
