** Dr. Doofenshmirtz does this sometimes. One episode shows a flashback to him working all weekend to make the model and hoping that Perry the Platypus appreciates it.

->''"Young Gray was fiddling about with a couple of Dinky Toys and a model of a street intersection. One of the buildings had a little flag and the whole thing looked terribly like a long-range elimination set-up for telescopic sights and I didn't interrupt except to remind him to lock the door as soon as I'd gone."''

* BBC News, and later Channel Four News, were ridiculed and parodied for this when using sandbox models and toy tanks to explain British involvement in assorted wars and peace-keeping operations (First Gulf, Yugoslavia, Second Gulf). These were pushed around by an enthusiastic ArmchairGeneral called Peter Snow.

* ''Series/TheAvengers''. In "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station" the GenreSavvy villain handcuffs Steed to a pipe so he can explain his EvilPlan with the help of a model train set.
-->'''Villain:''' I had you brought here to witness the final phase.
-->'''[[QuintessentialBritishGentleman Steed]]:''' That's very decent of you.
-->'''Villain:''' It's for me really, verging on megalomania you might say. But a coup is not a coup without someone to see.
-->'''Steed:''' ''(indicating cuffs)'' Excuse me if I don't applaud.

* In ''Film/TopSecret'', what begins as PlanningWithProps segues into this.

* In ''Film/TopSecret'', what begins as PlanningWithProps segues into this. The protagonists sketch their plan to infiltrate an East German fortress by drawing a crude map in the dirt. As the description progresses, the props get increasingly elaborate until they end up with a highly-detailed scale model of the installation complete with working train set.




to:

* Film/{{Goldfinger}} had a very impressive scale model of Fort Knox and its surroundings.
* ''Film/SupermanReturns'' has a train set used this way. Lex Luthor throws part of a Kryptonian crystal in the model lake to show its effect. Made extra creepy when the camera zooms on little plastic people and you hear screams.



** In ''Without Remorse'', the model used for going over John Kelly's part of the GreatEscape [[spoiler:from the Song Tay Prisoner of War camp]] is mentioned in passing, with a note of the marker used to represent Kelly being a rubber band cut open, with two dots on one end for eyes, after Kelly's callsign of "Snake".
** A model found in an Afghanistan cave during a US Army raid becomes a plot point in ''Dead or Alive''.
