FINALLY! Tornado maquette images…

Before I started working on the Steel Tornado, I created a smal scale model, or “maquette”…good design practice instincts in full swing, you might say. Anyway, here are a couple images I just took of the maquette. It is destined to be a gift for a young friend who is obsessed with bad weather. May it help exorcise a demon or two!
The entire thing is made out of tie wire. The tornados are suspended from the cloud lines and the tornados can move a little. They are also removable. Talk about having ultimate control over a terrifying climatological event!
