Since the earliest days of the industrial revolution engineers have constructed models of their designs to test and predict the performance of the intended full-scale structure. Indeed it was the repair of a model that prompted James Watt to undertake his pioneering work on the steam engine. Many people interested in the technology of the day made engineering models and it became a popular pastime. To find out more please visit our About page.
