One of my favorite jobs on WOW was building this model of the farmhouse that Rachel and her father Ray take refuge in. Unfortunately they meet up with a pretty seedy character that is almost as bad as the aliens.

Another cool model...a diner they take refuge in also. The diner was named RONS BAR and had a neon sign on top. I got to bring the sign home after the show and now it is in my shop.

A model of where the ALIENS first come from underground and a model of a basement set that was built for when Ray climbs out of the rubble into the crashed 747 set.

Images from the crashed 747 set. Notice the PSYCHO house in the background of the third picture. This set was built on the backlot at Universal Studios.

Imagine seeing this wide-load come down the freeway when being delivered to the set! A pic of the model I built as reference for how one of the houses was to be built.
