Miniature Projects In Many Scales

Miniature mouse and Calico Critter outside a simple house made from recycled materials.

You can build original, high quality miniatures to add to your collection. All kinds of projects in all sizes and scales.

Plan a Display

Main items assembled for the planning stages of a miniature display

Proper planning can take an average collection to a much higher level. Get those collectibles out of the cupboard and on display where you can enjoy (and protect) them.

Build a Display

Miniature rustic mountain cabin with a front porch in dollhouse scale

Create customized displays that suit your collection. Every miniature deserves to be showcased instead of stored.

Materials and Tools for Miniatures and Scale Models

Scale 'fish food' on the water surface makes this simple dollhouse pond extremely realistic.

These basic materials are used for a wide range of miniature and modelling projects. You can make miniatures with a minimum of tools and materials, then add to your toolkit or materials stash as needed.

Maintain a Collection
