In the evening of May 4th, 2007 a large and destructive EF5 tornado hit the little Town of Greensburg Kansas. It destroyed 95% of the Town and left 11 people dead. This was the first EF5 tornado which rated with the new EF scale. Now i'll show you the first rebuilt structure of the Town after the tornado. The Greensburg Water Tower. This Model of the Tower is dedicated to the victims of this destructive tornado. Greensburg: Stronger, Better, Greener!
About this creation
The black parts are the lights to illuminate the Water Tower at night.
On the roof, the red warning light and some other stuff :)
The original Water Tower of Greensburg.
This is the destroyed old Water Tower.
I don't own the last two original pictures. They are only as reference for the model.
Garrett, thank you very much for your nice comment. Never forget the news in German TV after the tornado struck Greensburg. I'm stopping by on their homepage or take a look via google street view from time to time.

Sehr cool. Warst du schon mal in den USA? :D
Joern, daaanke dir für deinen netten Kommentar. Freut mich das dir der Turm gefällt. Wie ich dir schonmal geschrieben hab, warte ich immernoch darauf mal in die USA reisen zu können. Muss aber noch drauf sparen. War also selbst noch nicht da. Lieber Gruß, Sven

I agree with Chris M! The first pic looks real! This is a nice 'side' build as i'll call it as you dont usualy do stuff like this! Its great! The details are everwhere in this thing!
Thank you very much for commenting it. This makes me really happy :) Because i've some stormchaser trucks, i decided spontaneously to build this Tower. I think it fits well to my stormchaser theme.

Great job. The 'worm's eye view shots' (looking up) are fantastic.
Thanks a lot for your kind comment. I'm glad that you like it so much. It was a spontaneous idea to build this because i must wait a longer time for new parts for my new FDNY projects. Btw, whats your real name?
