Abstract: The connection between semi-biplanes and antiregular generalized quadrangles is employed to construct different plane models of semi-biplanes. The connection between antiregular generalized quadrangles and circle planes is used to generalize these models. The plane models of the classical semi-biplane are described explicitely. They can be visualized easily. The treatment shows how the different models are connected.
Keywords: Semi-biplanes, generalized quadrangles, antiregular quadrangles, circle planes
