Not every transportation model is about highway redesigns. This is the Thor truck, an emergency 911 vehicle model. The problem with natural disasters is that they tend to take down the very services that were put in place to protect us. This mobile emergency services truck can be deployed to a disaster site to keep [...]
Milwaukee Transportation and CH2MHill engineering have used us many times to construct models showing necessary changes to their highways throughout the state. This model for the Brown County interchange was built in the horizontal scale of 1″ = 200′ with a vertical scale of 1″ = 100′ to better see the heights and highway separations.
The highway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco required major updates. We were tasked with building a ten foot civil engineering model of the whole Presidio area from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Palace of Fine Arts. Where the highway previously went over the rolling hills, there are now going to [...]
This civil engineering model of the Michell Interchange in Milwaukee covers a lot of area. The funky shape is required to show just the areas affected by construction. The model sections each had to come apart and be reassembled easily. The crate nested all of the model sections into one box for ease of transportation. [...]
The Sixth Street Viaduct in Los Angeles California needs to be replaced. The concrete is disintegrating and there is no other solution but to rebuild the bridge. Unfortunately there is also a huge fan base for this old bridge. Because of its location it has been featured in about 70 major motion pictures. Jim Carrey’s [...]
Oak Street Station Museum shows the heyday of the trolly car. We built models of historic and modern trollies to populate this display model. Overhead cantinaries were shown to demonstrate the trollies efficiencies. This display model of the transportation museum was used to raise it’s profile, show the design off to investors and raise money.
