Need a head for heights in the Towering Inferno
The building miniatures were constructed and filmed on the Sersen Lake floor at the Fox Ranch in Malibu. The 138 story tower miniature is around 70 feet high.

L.B. Abbott's book "Special Effects - Wire, Tape and Rubber Band Style" has a complete chapter dedicated to the filming of effects for The Towering Inferno with an excellent colour section.
