"Today's high tech 3D computer rendering software is amazing, but it can't match the impact of a hand-built scale model."
I worked full-time for an architectural model shop for three years in Knoxville, Tennessee. Henderson & Associates, owned by Neal Henderson, was a wonderful place to work and learn. Neal taught me a lot, and I even brought some new technologies to him that he had never used before (like CA super glue!).
The photos you see above are some of the projects that I built while at Henderson & Associates. Being paid to build models was an unbelievable opportunity for me. The downside was that when I got home at night, the last thing I wanted to do was grab an X-acto knife and start building models!
I was able to use the firm's equipment after hours for many of my own hobby projects. That was a treat. And, Neal was a model aviation nut like me, so he had a real appreciation for my personal hobby projects when I brought them in.
If you would like me to buiild an architectural model for you, I would consider it. However, with family and other commitments, finding the time would be hard these days. I would instead suggest that you contact Midwest Model Makers in Indianapolis. They are a premiere model building company and they work nationwide. Check out their website. Its amazing what they have done!
