I am looking for paper buildings of the casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada, from the 1950's or 1960's or 1970's or even the 1980's. Does anyone make such buildings?

I am trying to replicate the outdoor scenes from movies such as Via Las Vegas, or Amazing Colossal Man, or Diamonds are Forever, or Ocean's 11.

Thanks.

Thank you DisasterWargamer but all of these hotels and casinos seem to date from the 1990s or later. I am looking for Old Las Vegas which was mostly torn down to make these hotels.

Hi

Not models but a great book on the strip in the classic era.

Hopefully you find some. Might want to collect clearance sale battery-operated Christmas mini light sets now so you can light'em up… ;-)
