One of model coordinator Dennis Nicholson's crew members is working on a miniature of a Sydney skyscraper in this production still.

These sets were used for the final sequences in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome as a fly-through over the ruins of Sydney in a distant post-apocalyptic future. 

This production still captures the extraodinary skill of the set designer. Unfortunately at the end of filming the models were too big to be put into storage and were all destroyed.
