Welcome to Glenn R. Johnson Scale Models. We specialize in building high quality architectural and engineering scale models of unique and diverse design.

In our 45 years of business, we have developed techniques that distinguish us from other model building companies. Our models are recognized for their crisp, clean, aesthetic, and detailed appearance. We have also been known for our ability to complete models on short deadlines.

Many of the Glenn R. Johnson model builders have over 15 years of experience in their craft. They are comprised of architects, engineers, fine artists, and wood craftsmen.

You might recognize the model above as the Irvine Spectrum. Or the model at right as the windmill from the movie, Moulin Rouge.

This model of The Portiuncola sitting to the left of the actual Portiuncola in Assisi, Italy, is a true example of the GRJ Models signature look of realism, aestheticism, and fine craftsmanship.

Glenn R. Johnson Scale Models, Inc. was started by Glenn R. Johnson in 1964. Glenn had been creating award winning models since childhood and spent two years as a model builder in the Los Angeles area in his late teens. After that company went out of business, Glenn moved south to Orange County and started his own model shop. Initially, he had only a small space and worked alone bringing in a couple of freelance model builders if he was busy.

He soon outgrew this space and in 1966 moved to a larger 1,200 square foot space. He continued to hire freelance model builders until 1974 when he hired on his first full-time company employee. Then in 1979 after renting several extra spaces in the area, the company purchased a historic 6,000 square foot building in downtown Orange, restored and redesigned the interior to meet the needs of the company. Currently the company has 17 full-time employees of which 14 are professional model builders.
