Emergency Request!
Building 7 urgently needs large posters, laminated maps, bologna and gerbils!

There is a ton of potential for destruction on this project. I like it.

for sure....

one suggestion is to use steel demolition balls on cranes plus diggers and hysters and smash the buildings down and then burn them......or while they are on fire...

i still like thermite...... :roll: :twisted:

Thermite won't work. Wood will actually insulate the thermite reaction. There are other solutions, though. Much would depend on your budget and technical prowess..... Think about the leveling of the old casinos in Las Vegas and now add fire and a few other goodies....

i had heard that about thermite and thought we could have cauldrons of the stuff poring down the buildings and igniting propane......

or we just get some dynamite and blow the buildings up! :wink:

The sparks you see in the video are from the thermite reaction. If they had placed the thermite on some 1/4" steel plate it would have melted the steel and you would actually see a flow of molten metal. It really is a nice effect. I am not certain how the Fire Art Safety Team is going to feel about about releasing a bunch of propane and then igniting it. Propane is heavier than air and will create a layer on the ground. When it reaches its' flammability range it will ignite, quite suddenly. It would look spectacular, but you will need a backup source of ignition and a LARGE safety perimeter. Anything is possible.
Those who think they can and those who think they can't are both right.
