Model for Fuel Farm Case
Since this entire fuel farm had been rebuilt many times over the years, not one set of plans showed what it looked like. Our job as model makers was as much about piecing together historical documents as it was building the model. With the completed model in hand, the lawyers were able to make their arguments about what occurred while looking at an accurate reconstruction of the entire site.
Yes, this entire Fuel farm exploded. It happened in Denver and I wasn’t nearby when it occurred but I bet it was a sight that would make the special effects crowd jealous. We were tasked with reconstructing this farm as a demonstrative evidence model. Unfortunately, there was nothing left to look at.
