What Our Clients Say…

ALE have worked with Rainford models for a number of years to complete bespoke scale models of our heavy lift cranes. Andrew has always invested considerable time to understand the engineering and design of the equipment to ensure that the models are as realistic as possible. All models have been delivered on time and to specification meaning that I’d happily recommend Andrew and Rainford Models to prospected clients.

I have always found Rainford Models to be excellent at interpreting our brief and understanding our drawings to enable model making.
