Some of my work



I'LL BUILD A MODEL OF YOUR BUSINESS PREMISES  - whether its a factory, mill, office, shop, pubs and any commercial premises, it will promote your business and show the pride in your success. 
It will be a great talking point for your customers!
Just think .... how many of your customers stop to look at your premises and realise the effort and sheer hard work it's taken to get where you are now!


I MAKE MODELS OF SCHOOLS ANYWHERE IN THE UK.
There are many schools which are celebrating their centenary this year and next. Take a look at my "schools" section below.


I'LL MAKE AN INDIVIDUAL HANDBUILT MODEL OF YOUR HOUSE TO GIVE YOU FOND MEMORIES IF YOU'RE MOVING HOME

A model of your friend's or relative's house makes an unusual and unique present for them. These are miniature replicas which will provide an intriguing display - an ideal anniversary, wedding, birthday or leaving gift.


To give you an idea of the work involved - a small terrace house and garden would normally take around 3 days to complete. move up to a detached house and garden and I'd estimate 6 days. Probably the same for PUBLIC houses.  Larger buildings for businesses would probably take 8-9 days. A school will to take longer. If you work out the costs on here, you'll realise I probably don't charge more than the "minimum" wage rate. But I prefer to do that to win new and keep existing customers happy enough to pass me on to others with a good reference..

I keep being asked to do a blog on my site - but I know if I tried, it would never be up to date!

I'm so fortunate to have been included in a group of 20 "entrepreneurs" who were invited to 10 Downing Street to meet Daniel Korski , special adviser to the prime minister on small business and enterprise together with Matthew Hancock - small business adviser. Has to be one of the most fulfilling days of my life - and a key moment in my progress in developing my skills.


I'll turn your photographs into 3D (decoupage) pictures if you prefer. My most popular are wedding groups (especially in front of the church), happy couples in front of their house, your dogs playing, football and hockey teams - anywhere! 
How about a staff group photograph? I can "remove" and "add" people to order! Take a look on my website for more details!

I'm based in Tameside and work in the Greater Manchester, Cheshire and West Yorkshire areas, but look at the "You take the photographs, I make the model" tab for other locations anywhere in the world. You can see photographs on here, but the actual models show more detail. I'd be happy to bring you a couple of the sample models from this website to show you in more detail.

My model displays - and the modelmaker himself

Most, but by no means all of the HOUSE models I make are around 13" wide, 8" high and 6" deep - just like the model shown on my display banner above. They're designed to hang on a wall or stand on a small shelf. A lot of my customers like to make a shelf to show off the model with a greater effect. I can supply wooden supports to match the colour of the frame I have done if needed.
Take a look at the box frames I've done in other pictures on here. Move your cursor over the pictures to see any notes I've added. I can and do make complete models of buildings and the land around them too - I'm not limited to any standard frame size.
I take both measurements and photographs so I can incorporate any specific feature you particularly like - never yet had to say - "no - that can't be done". I'll build to any scale - all I need to know is how big you want the model, and I'll work my magic. Have a look at my pictures to see for yourself!
It usually takes up to a week to do the whole model, but if you need something quicker than that, I'll always do my best to speed up the work.
As for cost - much depends on the detail you want on the model. SEE MY CONTACT PAGE FOR MORE DETAILS or call me on 07860 659939


For BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS and COLLEGES  - please see the separate sections later on my website
