Throughout history, models have always constituted an important means of representation. Vikings used models to elaborate their methods of boat construction and therefore this was their first step.

Ancient Romans, Greeks, Phoenicians, Egyptians, Incas, Mayas and practically every civilization have used scale models to represent their projects. In modern times, most architects use them as an efficient method of understanding and controlling the effects produced by the designed spaces.

For construction promoters, models signify an important presentation in selling houses, apartments, tourist complexes, golf courses, hospitals, airports, ports and any other construction that needs to be understood visually. Due to the variety of possibilities there is a big demand for professional model makers.
