One of the scale model additions that we offer at Global 3D Arts is custom-made scale model covers and display cases. We design these clear covers to protect your model from being damaged and to keep them looking brand new. No need to worry about trying to clean between all of the tiny nooks and crevices on your model when it is preserved by a display case! These covers are not only durable but also removable so that you can show off your scale model however you please.
Another popular scale model add-on, custom nameplates are the perfect finishing touch to a scale model, especially if it is on display. Nameplates can feature the name or title of a project, a location or address, a map key, a short excerpt, or essentially whatever it is you want to outline. They are a great way to give context to your scale model for your viewers. We can customize the metal finish as well as the font style to match the overall look of the model and make it really stand out.
Get creative with your scale model display! We can create a custom table base that perfectly fits your model and gives it that extra wow factor. Regular tabletop bases that are not raised are also an option. These beautiful wooden bases can be fitted with one of our custom covers for an all-in-one scale model display that is sure to turn heads.
It is important to consider how your scale model will be getting from place to place, especially if it will be doing some regular travelling. We have created dozens of custom model crates and cases that make transport less stressful and more convenient. You can rest assured that your model will travel safely and arrive in one piece in our heavy-duty cases! While these are particularly useful for travelling exhibit or trade show models, they can also come in handy if you plan to store your model at any point.

New year – new models! We are excited to have already finished a scale model project so early into 2022. Hopefully, things stay at this pace all year long and we get the opportunity to do even more unique and challenging projects!
With a base size of 6 inches by 1 foot, the Lloyd Center Mall Scale Model features some of the most scaled-down details we’ve ever done. Without the help of any drawings or plans of the mall, we had to rely solely on Google Earth and pictures to produce the 3D files for printing. On top of that, we had to rush to get this model done and shipped off so that it could be given as a gift on time!
The cooperation and timely communication from our clients made this model possible. We enjoyed every second of this project, and look forward to more remarkable projects in 2022!

Looking for ways to bring your project to life? Are you entertaining the thought of using a 3D architectural visualization piece to market your big idea or to put on display? Though there are some people who approach us with a clear vision for their project, more often than not, clients come to us needing our expertise to guide them in the right creative direction. Between the exciting options of renderings, animations, or scale models, it can be hard to choose, but we can assist you through the decision process and find the best fit for you.
Besides the first step of deciding what form you want your project to take on, there are also critical decisions that need to be made about the details and design of the project. If you are interested in scale models, for example, you could explore the options of open floor, interior, massing, interactive, cutaway, or other types of models. You might even want to look into a combination of two or three different types. And that’s just the beginning! For first-time customers, this can all be very overwhelming. The good news is we have over 20 years experience in the field and can present you with the perfect 3D visualization solution that will suit your unique situation.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to your goals and how you want to achieve them through 3D architectural visualization. Want a show-stopping display that will put a big project into perspective? A scale model would do the trick. Looking to incorporate some storytelling or present a walkthrough of different elements of the project? Go with an animation. Interested in hyper-realistic snapshots from different angles of your project? Renderings are a great option. Our team at Global 3D Arts approaches each inquiry differently and works with you one-on-one to find the most fitting solution. If you are curious about renderings, animations, or scale models, but aren’t sure which option would be in your best interest, send us an email at email@example.com or call us at 888-609-2900. We would love to hear about your ideas and chat about the possibilities!

Ready for a tongue twister? Then meet our magnificent monochromatic MONA Museum Model!
Just recently delivered to Omaha, Nebraska to the architects office for the MONA Museum of Nebraska Art located in Kearney, this model was made to be utilized as a presentation piece for their proposed expansion and restoration of the museum. The current museum is housed in the historic 1911 United States Post Office building in Kearney. As the MONA’s programs and exhibits have grown over the years, so has their need for a larger and more accessible space.
We are pleased to have been able to create this special scale model to bring their vision for the renovations to life! The combination of the monochromatic color scheme with the green landscaping and lighting has produced a model that compliments the beautiful details of the historic post office building and the modern look of the new additions.

What’s better than one model you say? Well, ten of course!
Our latest project had us creating ten identical tabletop-sized exterior scale models for Best Egg, a loan agency located in Wilmington, Delaware. These models, which were shipped off last week, will be used as a surprise at an event to celebrate this new building in the next coming days.
Due to the event date being so soon, we had to work on a very tight schedule, but by putting all of our focus on this project we were able to make these beautiful models possible.
It was an great pleasure to work with the people at Best Egg, and we are so glad that we were able to do this project for them. We hope that these models make for an awesome surprise!
First up for the updated scale models is Victor E. Village! Victor E. Village is home to over 400 students and 17 Learning Communities. This unique building is where many first-year students at Fort Hays State University live and enjoy updated amenities, a comfortable lobby, private pod-styled restrooms and showers, and even an Italian take away restaurant.
The scale of the FHSU model results in a very tiny model that can fit into the palm of your hand! Soon, we will be adding all of the finishing details to the Victor E. Village model, including the paint, stonework, and a roof to replicate the actual building. There will definitely be more exciting updates to come on this part of the model!
Next, we have the Center for Applied Technology scale model in the works. Another important newer addition on the Fort Hays State University campus, the Center for Applied Technology hosts classes in computer-aided drafting, construction management, graphics, interior design, computer science and more. On the north corner of College Drive and 8th Street, this impressive structure is a whopping 58,000 square feet and came with a price tag of $16.5 million.
Davis Hall, which was razed in 2017 and formerly housed technology studies at FHSU, is still currently present on the campus scale model, but will be removed with the 2021 updates. The intricate details and design on the Center for Applied Technology model will make this building stand out on the FHSU scale model!
Keep an eye out for the full transformation as many more updates and pictures are still to come!
