Whether it’s a small scale diorama, or a large interactive exhibit, we can take it from concept through design and build to installation. Models appeal across the generations, and are a draw in any exhibition space. We have worked with museums, visitor centres and corporate clients to create bespoke three dimensional exhibits covering a range of subject matters, from technology to history, nature to culture.
Clients come to us with an idea, and perhaps a sketch, of what they’d like. Most of the projects featured below were designed and developed by ourselves, to the brief of the client. Most likely we will meet to have a chat, and then Finch & Fouracre will produce a costed proposal. The advantage of this approach is producing a design that we know will be deliverable, using the expertise we’ve gained of models for public display. You can read more about commissioning work here.
Delivery is included in the quote, as is an indicative timescale. Once the spec of the model is agreed, so is the fee, and we normally request 25% of the total to be paid in advance of work commencing. We use materials and techniques that we are familiar with - the majority of a model is made using timber and/or plastics. We utilise some digital fabrication, in particular laser cutting, but find hand-finished work is far superior to anything a machine can do (at the moment!). We work with clients to ensure the aesthetic of the model fits with the other visuals it will be displayed alongside.
As the nature of these briefs are always different, so are the finished models. You can be sure that the model you commission from Finch & Fouracre will be one of a kind, created specifically according to your requirements, and finished to the highest standard.
