Atomic Age tiki time on the model railroad

By way of Dinosaurs and Robots comes this awesome prototype of a soon-to-be HO-scale model kit of a 1960 tiki-fied SoCal bowling alley, cocktail lounge, and coffee shop. Swanky! The designer, Mike Cozart, also has plans for a department store, car dealership, movie house, and shopping center done in classic Atomic Age designs.

  1. Wow! This reminds me of the old Kon Tiki Hotel on Van Buren street in Phoenix Arizona. Nice work… very authentic. :)
