I'm a theatre student, and we have to make models for design classes.  They're miniatures of the set, so you can get a feel for it before it's built in real life.  I'm pretty proud of them.  They're foam core, balsa wood, and polymer clay, mostly.  They're in 1/2" scale, so they're itty bitty...

My first model ever.  It's mostly paper, and it didn't hold together too well.  It's a little crooked, but that's how we learn!  I really like the little dude, even though he's not totally accurate to real life.

My final for our model making class.  The floor warped really badly when I laid the balsa wood down.  I've been meaning to fix it, but haven't found the time.

A close up.  I built all the furniture from scratch.  The chair, ottoman and book are polymer clay with wood accents and the globe is a ping pong ball with poly clay and balsa.

The model with light on it...not the best photo I've ever taken...

This is for Charlotte's Web.  It's being built in real life right now, to open next week... eep!!  This model is 1/4" scale, so it's less than a foot wide. 

There's this pretty badass ferris wheel... it's 24' in diameter and it spins.  The one in the model doesn't... I'm not that awesome in tiny scale.

Thanks for looking!

This looks like fun. You do a great job. Some people are really into the miniatures scene. You may be able to sell these.

Your set designs are awesome! Most of the time the set designs I see are either basic prints on computer paper or the beginnings of a set on a plywood bottom, nothing really detailed.  If you wanted to make your ferris wheel spin, You could poke a small hole in the center of it and use jewlery wire and polymer clay to hold the wire in place...pin it to the back if it's mostly connected, or if it's got a frame attach it to a frame. . .that's what i'd do ^.^
