That job still exists?

I just thought they just ask the minimum wage interns to do this.

Dying craft.  I haven't seen one built lately.  Granted, there are still some very talented model builders/shops out there, but yeah, generally, it's an intern task.

If I'm not mistaken, these fall into one of two categories nowadays:

Farmed out to an office ($$$$$) that only does this, similar to a carpentry warehouse. This is almost exclusively for the developer's showroom.

Interns on the competition beat, in-house. This is almost exclusively for the competition entry of the firm.

I'm an intern and mostly build models along with the occasional CAD work.

For the "showroom" models used for planning commissions and reviews, we farm out the models to a model building office, which we end up paying top dollar for.

Big firms have in house modelers who are very talented, work like crazy and don't make much. The smart ones open their own boutique model building shops.
