About Us

Paul's Model Shop is a family owned business that was started in 1970 in Lancaster, Ohio by founder Paul Gilpin in the basement of his house providing acrylic prototypes for local companies.

Since then we have grown into over a 3000 sq. ft. facility with up to date manufacturing equipment providing prototypes for the most major brands design firms and independent companies in the glass and plastic industry. 

For almost 50 years we have been in business by providing high quality prototypes with competitive pricing and excellent service.
