Once you decided to make an architectural scale model, the next step is decide the model scale. This decision is affected by two points; how big an area you need to model and how much detail you want to show.

If you need to show a big area, you would have to choose a smaller scale, say 1:500, 1:750 or even 1:1000. With less details showing since the model is too small to make all in details.

If the purpose of the model is to show just the building itself you could consider 1:200, 1:150, 1:100 or even 1:50 scale. At these scales you can show all details, windows, doors, balconies, etc.

Whatever the purpose of your model, being able to understand scales will enable you to work out practical, achievable options for your particular project.

Scales are actually very simple. The scale of an architectural model is a ratio - in other words, the relative size of the model to the real thing. For example, 1:1 scale (we would say it as "one to one") would be a life size model. Whereas, 1:10 scale ("one to ten" or “one tenth scale”) would be one tenth of actual size. Likewise, 1:100 would be one hundredth of actual size, and so on. The larger the scale indicator number, the smaller the model, which means less detail can be shown.
