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.

Rainford are ideally suited to large and small customers where current on site facilities, project budgets or time scales do not allow for details CAD & SLA development or styling.

Museum Interactives

Rainford Models have made hundreds of educational interactive models for museums, exhibitions and visitor centres across the world. Our in-house expertise and specialist equipment means that we can fabricate large museum interactives and interactive exhibits in a wide variety of materials and formats.

We have made quality museum interactive models for a variety of locations worldwide including Ciutat de les Arts I les Ciences in Valencia, the interactive areas at the Moscow Planetarium, as well as for Sellafield and Underwater Street in the UK.

A few examples of the museum interactive models that we have made for those locations are shown on the links below.






The above video shows a Glowing Rott’s Chaos Pendulum which was developed by Rainford Models Ltd in conjunction with Ian Russell of Interactive Science Ltd. With the addition of a secondary smaller rotating arm we have managed to create even more Chaos! Light gathering acrylic and UV lighting flashing at 50 times per second create a firework spoked wheel effect…… Brilliant!! The whole thing is set in motion by twisting a single central knob. It will shortly be on display at the Edinburgh Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

Rainford Models can also make mini science interactives suitable for smaller locations in visitor centres and classrooms examples of our mini science interactive models can be seen on the science interactives page.
