Models have ranged from those in precious metals to those in acrylic and wood including an Old Kent Plough in Silver and rosewood a model of Ramsgate Lighthouse, a Silver replica of the Deperdussin 1910 Monoplane featured in "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" alongside various architectural models. More recently these have exploited the possibilities of Computer Aided Design and Rapid Prototyping, Laser Cutting and Lost Wax Casting.
