Modelshop/Taiwan Paper automata are not just toys. They are works of art and demonstrations of science. A lot of thought goes into the design of every model. Each is marvelous on its own, and shines even more brightly as part of a collection. All Modelshop automata are constructed from paper rather than plastic. Paper is lightweight, strong, easy to work with and environmentally friendly. From Famous Ships and Cruises to Taiwan Vintage Model Houses and European Automata Art Masters Collections, all Modelshop collections recall poignant moments in history. They are equally appealing to adults and children. Pull the levers, turn the crank and watch with delight as the model springs into life.
