A view of the future - 1950's style

The following three photos are taken from a Meccano Magazine showing 1950's views of the future. For me they offer fantastic inspiration for Retro Sci Fi modellers like myself and should be shared.

The third photo shows a Space Gun, for firing capsules of space tourists in to orbit. The huge crane is for loading the capsule/shell.

You can see them becoming more "realistic" in their depictions. In fact the lines of most of those pieces are pretty much in keeping with what became reality.

I have always wanted to model up some space warships using "real space" design elements.
