Modellers using Industrial Clay also called plasticine to create a design for the new Range Rover.

Before a new car model is launched, a long period of creating the right design (or model) usually takes place.

Modellers usually use various modeling tools like rasps, scrapers and knife edges to finalize the shape of the car.

The special thing about the Industrial plasticine (clay) is that it doesn’t harden or dry out and can be shaped and reshaped.

The automotive industry predominantly uses special Industrial plasticine also known as the “clay” to create models for prototype cars as well as future production cars.

The light brown, wax-based modeling clay was first introduced in the 1930s by automobile designer Harley Earl, the head of the General Motors styling studio.

Before a new car model is launched, a long period of creating the right design (or model) usually takes place. These models, which are created from clay, usually consist of a wooden or iron frame which is covered with Styrofoam.

Modellers, like those pictured here working to create a design for the now released new Range Rover, usually use various modeling tools like rasps, scrapers and knife edges to finalize the shape of the car.

The special thing about the Industrial plasticine (clay) is that it doesn’t harden or dry out and can be shaped and reshaped. That means that models that have been created and stored can still be changed or reshaped again.
