This was made in sections,
each one representing 16 square miles, that could be lifted out to get a view
across the landscape.
The original plan was to scale this model up, so that Oxford Scientific Films could 'fly' their specialised cameras around the
world that the Gelflings were travelling through, but for technical reasons this idea was abandoned. The model was used for
checking shots, deciding where all the main features of that world were in relation to each other and planning Jens' journey.
