Models of houses and buildings are two of the most effective types of architectural models in the construction and property development industries. One of the reasons for this is the possibility of representing a building to scale without losing any quality in the detail at all. This makes it an attractive sales tool for the general public. However, one of the most frequently used prototypes is the masterplan model, designed to represent a large-scale real estate project that is still in its construction phase.
Masterplan models are the most suitable for representing large projects. That is why they are normally built using scales of 1:500 or 1:1000. These are substantially smaller scales than those used in other forms of architectural representation. However, their smaller scale does not prevent them from having the highest level of detail and realism.
