If you consider yourself creative, you've probably honed an array of hands-on handicrafts. If you're looking for a new practice to perfect, model-making is a fun alternative to traditional art—especially when you have a list of quirky kits at your disposal!

To show just how fun this craft can be, we've compiled a collection of our favorite creative model kits. Ranging from architectural marvels like the Louvre to adorable animals like llamas and sloths, these fun sets let you tinker to your heart's content. Plus, once you're done piecing each creation together, you're left with a small-scale sculpture that doubles as evidence of your handiwork and as DIY decor. It's a win win!

Bring our your inner builder when you tinker with these creative model kits.
