SCIENCE FICTION MODEL ON DISPLAY
A model of the Space Fuel Freighter is on display in the Adult Department on the second floor. This miniature model was built by John Galvin of Burlington. It's a shortened prototype for a feature length movie that his company, JWI Entertainment, has in development. This custom model is made from many different materials, mainly cardboard, balsawood, plastic and over 13,000 toothpicks. It has over 100 working lights on five separate circuits, two working "cargo bay doors" and working "shuttle bay flaps." The "radar tower" also rotates.
