VIDEO: Model makers recreate World Trade Center, Fox News reports

Above: Veteran news anchor Shepard Smith narrates another installment of the Fox News video series, “Rise of Freedom.”

Shep takes us to Hoboken, NJ, to meet Ed Wood and Leszek Stefanski, partners of Radii Inc – a firm responsible for creating exceptionally detailed and accurate scale models, including one of the World Trade Center site. Lasers precisely cut the models, guided by actual architectural plans.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a model is worth a million,” exclaims Ed Wood.

Fox News has been documenting the progress at the World Trade Center site. Catch past episodes here.
