|The museum sells a variety of full colour card models to cut
out and glue that are packaged in plastic bags: 1. Single sheet A4 buildings
at 99p. 2. A large (about A2 size card) but simple model of the Lord Mayors'
Coach at £2.50 and 3. A series of humorous card automata at £3.50,
each having four sheets of card about 21cm square. Items 1 and 2 are aimed
at children but item 1 are 00 scale (4mm = 1 foot) so can also be used on
model railway layouts either as they stand or could be super detailed by
recessing the windows, embossing roof tiles, etc. Item 3 is aimed at 12
years upwards due to the more complex cutting and assembly requirements.
However, as reprints are due, the producer of these models is now having
them die-cut so they will all eventually be press out and glue models rather
than cut out and glue. Instructions to build the model are either printed
on the sheet or on the packet. I have made one of almost all the models
the museum sells so that prospective purchases can see what the finished
model will look like, a good selling aid as is colour which, although more
expensive to produce, looks much more enticing than black and white. Look
at the card models page on the web site to see a Flying Pig among others.
