Now its been a long time since I created a model here on the Secret Island, and when I did it resulted in the use of a basic kit, some glue which seemingly was only useful for attaching fingers and a lot of swearing from my Dad! I ended up with a Spitfire of sorts and lots of spare parts... I've had no interest since ... until now!
Mike Cozart has always loved model making and spent thirteen years working for Disney and is still building and designing models today! His latest project is the wonderful Aloha Lanes (originally to be called Tiki Bowl ... Aloha Lanes is better!) inspired by several structures in the San Diego area some which are still standing today. Aloha Lanes also features a coffee shop called "TIKI COVE" and a cocktail lounge called "THE PELE ROOM."
The good news is that you may be able to purchase a version of Aloha Lanes in a 1/8Th (HO Scale) laser craftsman kit, Mike points out that the version of the final kit may not be as elaborate, and the coffee shop section may become a separate kit to keep the model size a bit smaller but he hopes that these will be sold under the CENTURY SCALE MODEL line.
I'll update when Aloha Lanes becomes available...
