    Not sure if this is the right place for this but here goes.

    Been a resident of Vegas my whole life. At one point I had a very old 3D model of the strip from 50's or maybe the 60's. It was made of wood and consisted of B&W aerial photographs glued down to the wood. Along with the aerial photographs there were B&W photographs of hotel signs along the strip that snapped into the rest of the model. Overall it was extremely well professionally done. I was a young kid when it was around and unfortunately it's long gone. I don't remember all of the hotels that were on it but I can remember the Dunes also possibly Sands and Flamingo among many others.

    Anybody ever see one of these? Always wondered if this came out of one of the hotels, Mccarran, or if it belonged to the city. Also wondering if there are any still around and on display somewhere in town.

    Thanks for the help!

    I have not seen this but it sounds cool.

    I think it would be neat if they sold little hotel replicas so you could build your own strip.

    Like those little christmas houses and cottages.

    You could collect them all.

    It would be very cool to see, especially the old fountain at The Trop.
