Here are grades of Level of Detailing for Architectural models and Scale Replicas along with description for each main and transitional grade. We hope that this section will help you to understand which level of detailing fits your needs best and which features will be provided when the level of detailing for your model is defined.

 

Low

General configuration and major details are accurately represented. Textures and finishes are not represented or represented with limitations. Mono, duo or tri chrome panting scheme, solid colors. Doors and windows are not represented or outlined. Scenery elements (if applicable) are simplified and painted monochrome. Vegetation (if applicable) is simplified (balls on stick in most cases) and painted monochrome. Furniture (for interior models, if applicable) is simplified, representing a general type of furniture item and a general size of it, painted monochrome. Pedestal / display (if applicable) is simplified, made of composites and solid painted.

 

Medium

General configuration and main details are accurately represented. Textures and finishes are represented with limitations by painting and applications, no use of natural materials. Panting scheme is multi-color, solid colors. Doors and windows are outlined, frameless, not recessed, and might be painted in assigned solid color (dark gray or dark brown by default). Scenery elements (if applicable) are simplified and painted monochrome or duo chrome. Vegetation (if applicable) is simplified (balls on stick in most cases) and painted monochrome. Furniture (for interior models, if applicable) is representing a specific type of furniture item and a general size of it, lightly detailed and painted to specifications in main solid colors. Pedestal / display (if applicable) is simplified, made of composites and solid painted.

 

Medium to High

General configuration, main and some precise details are accurately represented. Textures and finishes are represented by painting and applications, possible limited use of natural materials. Panting scheme is multi-color, solid colors. Doors and windows are frameless or have frames outlined by scribe-lines, recessed, and painted in assigned solid color (dark gray or dark brown by default). Scenery elements (if applicable) are realistic and painted monochrome or duo chrome. Vegetation (if applicable) is realistic and painted monochrome. Furniture (for interior models, if applicable) is representing a specific type and size of furniture item, lightly detailed and painted to specifications in main solid colors. Pedestal / display (if applicable) is simplified, made of composites and solid painted.

 

High

General configuration, main and precise details are accurately represented. Textures and finishes are represented by painting and applications, limited use of natural materials, such as wood, brass, steel and fabric. Stock and custom photo-etched details are being used to achieve a precise representation of selected details. Panting scheme is multi-color, realistic; paintjob is protected by “invisible” acrylic coating. Signs, paintings, insignia are precisely represented. Doors and windows are recessed, with frames (represented by mask-painting or photo-etching) and colored non-transparent background (dark gray or dark brown by default), with glossy finish on the outside. Scenery elements (if applicable) are realistic and painted monochrome or duo chrome. Vegetation (if applicable) is realistic and painted monochrome. Furniture (for interior models, if applicable) is custom, detailed and painted to specifications. Pedestal / display (if applicable) is made of wood and composites and solid painted or stained.

 

High to Museum

In general close to “High”, with the following upgrades:

  • Wider use of natural materials, such as wood, brass, steel and fabric.

  • Doors and windows might be made of clear material with partial interior behind them.

  • Scenery elements (if applicable) are painted realistically upon request.

  • Vegetation (if applicable) is painted realistically upon request.

  • Pedestal / display (if applicable) is made of wood, stained and has brass plate upon request.

 

Museum

This is the highest standard of scale model fabrication. The main goal is to create a replica which will look precisely like scaled down original and will be protected from aggressive agents, affecting its look and shortening the life of the model. All details are the most precise and accurate. All textures and finishes are realistic, represented by acid-free applications, artistic painting and decoration, with massive use of custom photo-etching and natural materials, such as wood, brass, copper, steel, stainless steel and fabric. Actual chrome or silver plating. Anti-aging treatment of interior and exterior. 

Deluxe wooden or custom designed pedestal/display with custom brass plate (upon request).
