Turbine Diorama Pieces

Here's a behind the scenes view of what went into the Faux Promotional Photo.

From looking at the design cues of the early 60's interiors, I decide to go with the "Populux" style, which incorporated wood paneling, metallic surfaces and bold shapes.

I was always fascinated with showrooms that displayed parts of the automobile for closer inspection. So for that, I raided an unbuilt kit for the console, wheel assembly, engine and dashboard.

Boy, if such a showroom ever existed for the Turbine, I would have camped out there permanently.
