Architectural Modelling

Here at Gaugemaster we have some products that are suitable for a number of different architectural modelling applications and also for doll's houses. The greatest difficulty is scale as whilst a figure has an easily defineable scale, scenic materials for example, become tricky as a single piece of scatter material could be comparable to dust for a larger scale or a boulder for a smaller one. Some common sense is needed and if you are unsure about a particular product please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on it.

Preiser logo Preiser 1:500 figures Preiser are the world-leaders in miniature figure making and they manufacture figures in many scales from the largest at 1:22.5 to their amazingly tiny 1:500 scale ones, (pictured left). These are intended for architectural modelling, as are their slightly larger 1:400 and 1:350 scale ones.

Moving upward in scale, Preiser offer a larger selection of 1:200, 1:100 and 1:50 scale figures in both their painted and unpainted forms.

Other scales offered include 1:220, 1:160, 1:120, 1:144, 1:87, 1:72, 1:48, 1:43, 1:35, 1:32, 1:25 and 1:24 so there should be something for everyone!

Slaters logoFor embossed plastic sheets of walling, roofing and paving look no further than Slaters. Many different styles are available, Slaters stone coursessuitable for scales around 1:160, 1:87 and 1:43 although 1:100, 1:50 and 1:25 versions for some designs are also available to order - please contact us for these. Sheets of ‘random stone’ can be used for a large range of scales as there are no strict ‘courses’. Also paving is fairly universal as in reality paving slab and tile sizes vary considerably.

Slaters Plastic Rod Bespoke construction is catered for with the use of Slaters plain white ‘Plastikard’ A4 sheets, available in seven thicknesses from .010" to .080" as well as ‘Plastiglaze’ for windows and glazing also in A4 sheets. Extruded plastic rods can be found in sizes from .010" to .050" diameter round, (pictured left), as well as flat ‘Microstrip’ extrusions in many sizes. Alphabets in three different sizes are also available.

Faller logo Noch logo More walling comes courtesy of German companies Faller and Noch, this time in the form of printed cards, faller brick paper and embossed ‘hard foam’ decor sheets. The latter may be shaped by heating gently with a hair-dryer. Click for selections of the above in 1:87 scale, 1:120 scale, 1:160 scale and 1:220 scale. Bear in mind of course that scales for this type of product are as quoted by the manufacturer and in reality are flexible, for example, you may find that 1:87 walling or paving is fine for use as 1:100 scale.

Gaugemaster ScatterScenic materials are in abundance not only from Faller and Noch but from Gaugemaster too. Scatters, stones, flocks, grass mats and trees, may all be found and although many of the trees have heights specified please be aware of scale and if you are in doubt about any particular product, please do contact us.

Also worth a mention are the fencing and accessories, again intended for 1:87 scale, 1:120 scale, 1:160 scale and 1:220 scale.
