If you speak of models to a mathematician who is not keen on `Haute couture’, they will think either of their favorite equations if they work on the applied side of mathematics or of beautiful pieces of sculpture if they are more geometrically oriented. Regarding the latter kind of mathematical models, which in particular fascinated the artist Man Ray, several more or less famous collections can be seen in Europe. For instance there are some in Göttingen, Besançon or at the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) in Paris. The IHP has just launched a subscription  to have 30 models of its collection renovated, and concomitantly publishes together with CNRS editions a magnificent book. Take a look!
