Landscape/ Topographical Models

topographical banner

The impact on the environment of a new bridge, business park or wind farm can be difficult to visualise. Experience has shown that people understand and trust a physical model more than any other media. We can work directly from O.S. data to produce computer-machined landscapes, or interpret your survey drawings or photographs. Stepped contours, stylised, full colour or timber laminates all available.

Grant Sword, partner at Castle Stuart Golf links says:    "Inver Models were commissioned by Castle Stuart Golf Links ( Home of the Scottish Open 2010- 2013) to prepare two identical landscape models featuring the master plan for the future 425 acre Golf Resort. We wanted to showcase our future hotel and lodge plans to prospective clients at the Scottish Open. The models worked a treat – they were extremely well made with incredible attention to detail. As a marketing initiative we were delighted with the awareness they created".

Landscape model of Scottish Islands. Topographical diorama for exhibition and display purposes

Another shot of the Treshnish model. The Treshnish Isles are an archipelago so the finish of the water surrounding them was an important part of the landscape.

Machrihanish village and shoreline topographical landscape model in Scotland.

The shore line of Machrihanish on Scotland's west coast. The model was commissioned to show the residential properties and hotel facilities associated with a new golf course. The proximity to the sea of the first tee was an important consideration for marketing.

Topographical Study for Historical Scotland. One of a number of museum models supplied with interactive facilities.

A completely different approach to modelmaking; this site model of a First World War battlefield was produced as a stylised relief map and then cast in bronze. Computer machining was utilised for many of the components.
