architecture models physical construction

Construction of physical models is primarily done with matte and illustration boards and are sometimes detailed with balsa wood and other materials.
CAD Plans are printed on bond paper and then glued to an illustration board base.
Wall elevations are cut from illustration board with a matte knife, trimmed and cleaned up with a Dremel tool, and then assembled onto the printed plan base.
