What is a schematic model?
- Overview of your scheme.
- Created after and with a lot more detail than sketch model.
- It is neat and made using one material.
- Can be made with: cardboard, paper, acrylic, mount board, plywood.
In this lesson we were given card to work from and a booklet showing stages of what we had to do. Using a scale ruler (to work out the measurements on the 1:50 side), a cutting mat, a scalpel and a metal ruler (always use a metal ruler and not a plastic one when using with a scalpel as it could cut into the ruler) I made my way through the booklet.

I liked this lesson a lot because it was very useful to learn about all the different skills. It makes you look more accurately at measurements and putting them to scale and also I learnt how to score neatly to make a rounded edge and how to make the glue sticky instead of wet o that it doesn’t seep out from under the card and make the model look untidy.
