>The Lost World


Eisenhower’s in the White House, transcontinental TV’s just started, and Dad drives a Buick. All is well in America.

These delicious slices of Americana come from Michael Paul Smith, creator of the fictional town of Elgin park. It’s a small place, Elgin park – literally. These two scenes are 1/24th scale models. Lots more of his work here.

The mini-town also has an eponymous fansite, where you can find this chunk of genius from Theresa Thompson.
