The story 

Gamla Model Makers was invited to design and build a model of typical Midwest town for exclusive History Channel's documentary "Black Blizzard". The model represented a 1930s - 1940s era and served not only to bring to the audience a feeling of the place and time period, but also to demonstrate a  devastating effect of the ravaging deadly dust affecting all environmental aspects of living in the area at that time.

The model was richly detailed and represented with great accuracy main components: residential street, township buildings, commercial and industrial structures, railroad station farm and fields. The model was designed to be shipped to the designation in pieces and to be easily assembled in minutes by the filming crew.

Along with first-person accounts, archival films and photographs and commentary from various experts, the model and special effects staged on it helped to recreate the most dramatic environmental disaster of 20th century.
