One of my favorite model projects of the pre-CG era....it even had a end matte painting by ILM alum Yusei Uesugi that he painted and scanned into a computer and finished. And the credits ran over it so the shot went on and on.

Great stuff.

This and the jeep driving through the stadium later in the film are both terrific examples of the prowess of the ILM model shop in the mid 90s.

That driving into the stadium moment is terrific work, I agree, and also represents the last great John Williams music moment I can recall, unless you want to count duel of the fates. The horns are going in a glorious 70s way right then ...
