Buffalo Bill Museum, Wyoming


Life-size cutouts of cowboys and Indians from a board game that depicted the “Attack of the Deadwood Stage” needed to be securely mounted as not to fall over when visitors were walking among them in the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming.


CBI completed a structural review of life-sized cutout figures at the Buffalo Bill Museum. CBI first performed a preliminary analysis using the estimated loads on the figures and then, based on the results, commented on the feasibility of constructing the figure out of metal or plywood and the thicknesses required.
