Mini Models

There are many miniature models that people own and use throughout the world, including that of miniature train sets and miniature Lego models. Since a young child, I have often played with dolls, in particular Barbies and Polly Pockets. This then transformed into that of Lego sets, where I love to create small ‘dream’ houses. I then moved onto sets such as that of the Eiffel Tower and Tower Bridge – sets that I still have to this day (one of the memories attached to this, is building it in a record time of 7.5 hours). This sparked the idea of looking at Lego sets that are particularly designed to be 1:300 scale, such as that of the Eiffel Tower, and also train sets, that use a similar scale.
