Model makers design and make models of different items. These can range from products such as mobile phones and DVD players to construction developments such as new libraries and shopping centres.
Model makers work in a number of different areas:
- Architectural model design - building scale models of construction developments
- Product model design - making prototype models of new products. These are then tested before going into production
- Visual effects design - making models to use in film and TV special effects. These models cal also be used in producing models of film, TV and theatre sets, exhibition stands and displays.
