What are scale models?
Making miniature replicas of various objects which are much larger in reality is what making scale models actually is. Most commonly, what comes to mind when you think about scale models are cars in miniature, but it is so much more.
It originates all the way back in the Classical Antiquity era. People have always wanted to make nature their own so they made it smaller even from themselves. Many Roman and Greek architects used proportionate modeling to create models of the future cities and other fascinating projects. Creating miniature objects used to be a profession, but now it is also a hobby.
That how the creation of scale models begun. At the beginning only the natural materials were used, before plastic even existed, and later on manmade materials like plastic, glass, mirrors and textile started being used.
Techniques for making scale models and the types of models you can make
The basic scale modeling techniques are usually put in the following categories:
- Plastic scale models
- Wooden scale models
- Metal scale models
We should also mention that there are variations when it comes to proportionate modeling according to accurate measurements of objects, but we will stick to scale modeling as a hobby.
Almost every object you see in your everyday life can be an inspiration for a scale model. Just like the architects who can be inspired while walking through a city, you don’t have to think too much, the ideas will come to you easily.
The most common types of scale models are:
- Airplane models
- Car models
- House models
- Trains and tunnels models
- Entire communities, geographic areas and other inspiring models
However BAH workshops are anything but ordinary. Aside from the necessary basic techniques which are an important first step for making scale models, we also want to think outside of the box and allow your creativity to get to the ideal solutions. So, let your imagination run free, roll up your sleeves and discover the world of miniatures.

I graduated from the Belgrade Polytechnic Vocational college in Belgrade, where I specialized in Industrial design, and I do all of the work in connection with my education, but what I prefer above all is scale modeling. It all started long ago when I was collecting various little toys and miniatures and started to think about putting them in surroundings where they would look real. In that way scale models became my hobby, a way of life. I find inspiration every day in thousands of tiny objects, the world around me and activities in which people enjoy, so I try to turn interesting things into miniatures, and my biggest reward are the comments and mesmerized faces of people observing my work.
