Miniaturization of engineering objects need every inch of details as their acceptability is often quite a bit subjective also. Quality elements that go into miniaturized model includes finish, attention to details, reliability, environment effect, strength, life, paint, joints, machining, labeling and packaging.
The process of miniaturization of engineering objects, typically, follows the process similar to that involved in manufacturing custom built engineering products.
Starting with engineering specifications, it follows thru design phase that specifies material, process, tools, machines, drawings, components
and assembly and each stage thru careful quality check. Thus far, miniaturization has been assumed as an art than a science;
undermining professional requirement of delivering a quality solution. Steep time constraint demands specialists to work with scantiest details.
Of course, that is the situation, where skill and experience of engineering designer comes into play. Although, there are instances
when exact replicas have been done with mere a couple of photographs supplied by clients, client’s awareness of the process of miniaturization,
as an engineering practice, helps in delivering high quality models.
