Miniatuart models  are kits of laser-cut paper pieces that you assemble to create  intricate 3-D scenes. While they might seem intimidating because they are intricate, these models are totally doable and just require a bit of time and patience—with magical results!

Transport yourself to Japan with the Miniatuart Nostalgic Japan Series, which feature old-school Japanese buildings with lots of character. When you visit Japan, where many charming, retro buildings exist alongside modern ones,  you'll definitely come across the "real-size versions" of these models! ;)
Perfect additions to landscape/scenery for model trains.
