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.
