The profiles portray very precise angles and this helps enormously when you’re working in scale – i.e. it adds a real visual sharpness and makes assembly so much easier as pieces tend to ‘lock’ in to place. You also tend to get a visual confirmation that it looks right – when eye balling internal ribbing on a fuselage for instance.
The wide variety of profiles means there’s always the right shape for the job. The fact you can purchase them in singles a means with a small outlay you’ve got a very useful stock selection – so important when you’re working on a project at night that you just have to complete – or just because you’re so absorbed in it you can’t wait for the morning and a visit to your local hobby shop!
Some of the profiles are unique to Maquett – the Connector series for instance that help you create buildings, fences, sidings and all manner of architectural shapes, quickly and easily.
