During World War II the publishing firm of Dean produced elaborate cut-out books of warplanes, galleons, even the Maginot Line of which the original was to prove as little use as the cardboard model. The fun was in making them; afterwards they lay about gathering dust until they ended up as air-gun targets. Rob Ives' attractive models are for younger children but I think their appeal after being made may prove to be as short-lived.
