A model is a unique piece. But there are various types of models for specific use.

Architectural model

-The model which represents your creation. It can be made with noble or exotic materials, it represents the volume without the details. This model is more a sculpture than a traditional model.

- The white model, called TYPOS : it’s the more simple model : the building and its environment are white and only the glazed surfaces are transparent.
- The Hybrid TYPO model : the building is white and its envrionment is realistic, or realistic with a white environment.

- The realistic model is the exact reproduction with colours and shapes of your project.
- These models can be equipped with lighting, protection windows, feet etc…

- These types of models can be delivered to you in fixed version or mobile version.
- These types of models can be used as communication models on selling sites, exhibitions, shows.

- If your model has to travel by plane, this type of model is made to resist and can carry some specificities such as handles, flying case etc.
- The most common scales are: 1/ 25 1/50 1/100 1/200 and of course we can realize custom scales.
