4.0 Background of the Study . Model-making is as old as civilization. Scale models of buildings, boats, and furniture were buried in tombs of ancient Egyptians to represent possessions the dead took into the next world. Many ancient models survived in the tombs while the original objects did not; these have given historians an understanding of what life in ancient civilizations was like. During the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), French prisoners of war carved beautiful model warships from wood scraps; these models are so detailed that they have become documents of warfare and ships lost at sea. They are also highly prized today among antique collectors. During the Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, inventors of new tools, machines, artworks, and other objects began by building models of their ideas. Industrial technology was found to have its own beauty, and large machines like locomotives were admired and copied in miniature. Early in the twentieth century model ships and airplanes were sold in kits. Balsa wood pieces were machine-cut to fit together easily and could be painted and rigged like the originals,

some firms produced scale models of their products out of metal and wood as promotional models. more detailed kits and models that could be customized appeared. and celebrities like Elvis Presley were mass-produced in scale form. with models of starships and intergalactic craft that have flown on television and in the movies.
