Many children and a few adults enjoy building scale models. This sometimes ties to a particular interest – military vehicles, aviation, trains, sci-Fi or racing cars. At other times it just feels good to create. Until recently most of us were confined to building models from pre-made scale kits, unless we were experienced metal or

It would be a mistake to think that CGI in films has done away with physical models effects, or that 3D printing has completely replaced Scale model hobbying. Many films use a combination of CGI and model work, while Plastic scale models have a steady following, with built models often appearing alongside 3D printed items.

A few travellers have appeared on social media with luggage that displays their own face. It’s one way to make sure that others cannot steal your possessions; or at least prove that you are the rightful owner. Apparently the image is not on the luggage itself but on a pullover cover. But you could achieve
It is quite probable that kids like colourful decals more than anybody else. Even adults who like decals are thought to be expressing a childish part of their personality, though we happen to think this is a healthy side to all of us. Children’s room decals are a creative end well with perusing. A child
Decal Paper Decals are amongst the last details applied to any model or creative project. With all the effort put into the project we want to make sure we don’t ruin things at the last minute. Some generally useful tools and products: Varnish or clear finish (usually spray on). Cutting surface Bowl of water Dishwashing
The models of spaceships and vehicles in early Sci-Fi and fantasy films (think 1936’s Flash Gordon) had their limitations partially covered up by the poor picture resolution of the time. Later films had better resolution, so models needed to look more convincing. This required some unexpected efforts on the part of model builders. Neat, clean
The very first decals were used for ceramics, tiles and glass. Invented in France around 1750 these decals (then known as decalcomania) could provide the kind of fine detail and colour images otherwise only obtainable through masterful painting. The decals became popular for decorating fine porcelain. Some decals were made to withstand the refiring process
Guerrilla art works by doing away with traditional frameworks, literally and figuratively. Instead of putting an artwork within a frame, on a pedestal or behind a glass door the guerrilla artist make something that is a continual part of the environment. There were some guerrilla art ideas around in the 1970s, though in a constantly
Uses for Waterslide Decals We can decorate laptops, cases, drinking glasses, mugs, doors, cupboards and other items with decals. Photorealism is possible with some of these surfaces and some waterslide decal paper, but more often we find it better to stylize the image for waterslide decals. Using Photoshop or other digital manipulation programs we can
Using scale models of proposed designs is useful is some professions. Architecture is perhaps the most obvious one. The average person will not get a very good impression of a building from a blueprint, but decent scale models shows a client what the designer has in mind. This extends to some other industries as well.
Modern computers and printers give us a great amount of scope for designing 3D models and decals. Anything we can imagine can probably be made with the right computer package. Of course this is all for nothing if we cannot come up with an artistic design. Having the tools and facilities is one thing; having
