Urban models are models typically built at a much smaller scale (starting from 1:500 and less,  1:700,  1:1000,  1:1200,  1:2000,  1:20000),  representing several city blocks,  even a whole town or village,  large resort,  campus,  industrial facility,  military base and so on. Urban models are a vital tool for town/city planning and development. Urban models of large urban areas are displayed at museums such as the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center, Queens Museum in New York,  the Beijing Planning Exhibition Hall,  and the Singapore City Gallery.

Engineering and construction models show isolated building/structure elements and components and their interaction.

Industrial models usually show different scale industrial equipment and plant. such as drilling platform models, power station models, machine models, hydraulic electrogenerating models and so on.

A number of companies produce ready-made pieces for structural components siding, furniture, figures (people), vehicles, trees, bushes and other features which are found in the models. Features such as vehicles, people figurines, trees, street lights and other are called "scenery elements" and serve not only to beautify the model, but also to help the observer to obtain a correct feel of scale and proportions represented by the model. Increasingly, rapid prototyping and solid freeform fabrication '3D printing' are used to automatically construct models straight from CAD plans.
