The kit is a 1986 (!!!) release from Billiken Models and though I don't really care for vinyl kits that much, this one was a pleasure to work with.
The detailing was excellent and the model had well fitting joints and were easy to disguise with hobby putty.
The two transmission
towers are 3D prints that I scaled to fit the scene. They don't really match those in the film but mine look a bit more realistic. The base is a shallow shadow box of the type that I had used before and provides an excellent hiding place for wiring and a power
supply (like a battery) should one decide to light a scene.
I contoured the base with randomly shaped chunks of 1” thick
builders foam and placed 3” x 4” flat pieces at either end to act as bases for the two towers. I then covered it all with a layer of plaster cloth to enclose the entire surface. After the cloth had set, I coated it with a layer of Mod Podge dyed
green and then dusted the entire surface with scenic ground foam using various shades of green and brown to simulate a grassy field or meadow.
As I said, the two towers were 3D printed and required a little assembly, mainly attaching the four arms to each that support the high tension lines. I used common pins in the end of each arm to mount small craft beads to simulate ceramic insulators
and slightly larger beads for the aerial marker balls.
Before stringing the towers with stiff wire, I fabricated a number of
trees and shrubs of varying sizes to populate the open field. To further break up the monotony of the field, I made a small pond surrounded by rocks & trees out of clear resin.
