The reconstructed, dynamic method was tested, presented and recorded on film in a scale of 1:5. Click here to watch the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijvJWne1oWw

In the model the stone blocks are transported up by a 200 Watt motor. During the one-man presentation the system has to be stopped in between in order to relocate the rope deflection gears at the beginning and the end of the hoisting gear chain. In the documentary film the transfer of the rope deflection gears was cut out, as this would have been done continuously without disruption.

A lime sand block weighing 18 kg was used for the model. In the meantime, before the upper stone block arrives at the pyramid platform, a sledge with a smaller lime sand brick weighing 9 kg is pulled into the forks of the lower hoisting gear at the base of the model pyramid. The reason for the smaller size of the second stone in the model is that the author was not able to get hold of a thicker natural fibre thread than the one used at short notice.

The ramp on which the team rides down with the sledge during the transport of the pyramidion, protrudes far over the pyramid wall. In reality at the Great Pyramid of Giza, in the very moment in which the first of 7 sledges arrived at the bottom and the system would therefore automatically come to a standstill (because only 6 sledges were left pulling), a further sledge would always have been hung onto the hauling ropes so that the journey could continue smoothly and that the downhill ramp rests on the pyramid wall directly. However, in the model, which shows only the upper part of the pyramid, the attachment of further sledges hindered the smooth depiction of the system.
