doc - engineered specifically for one job and worked well, with what at first look appeared to be last ditch or hopeful at best ends up to be quite clever and practicle indeed. Includes a building and dramatization (normally not my favorite) but as this one delt with a scaled reenactment I found it useful and interesting.
