Making Miniature Buildings

There are a few useful tips to remember when making miniature buildings in particular.
  • Construct the model in sections. This helps with easier transportation of the model, which in industry will normally need to be taken to be assembled in a studio for filming.
  • Identify replicated patterns and features. This can be things like repeated brickwork or facades. An original master can be created and a mould can be made from it. Then you can cast the required amount needed for the building out of which ever material is suited to the building's design and the model's function, which in many cases will have to be blown up or destroyed!
