The models were officially handed over to Historic Scotland earlier this month and will be used as part of educational activities, organised to support pupils' learning.

The college offers a two-year, HND in 3D Design: Modelmaking for the Creative Industries as well as a oneyear, National Certificate (NC) in Modelmaking for TV and Film.

The HND course includes art and design, digital imaging and 3D design, while the NC covers, among other topics, drawing skills, prop making and computer-aided design. …
