A fake neighborhood to hide Boeing B 17 Bomber factory

It seems like Hollywood did a great appareance during the World War II, because the United States Army needed to hire some people to design some escenarios, so they created a false neighrhood above Boeing Plant No. 2 where thousand of B-17 bombers were produced.

It was a really small neighborhood which had buildings that were just 4 feet tall and were made of wood to complete the illusion of a neighborhood that was covering about 26 acres. If the enemies could see this creation closer, they would noticed it was a camouflage for a plant that was producing thousands of bombers.
