This group is focus on the modeling and collecting of Modern Americana -- from the FDR years to the IKE years. In other words 1931 to 1959.
A lot happen during these years -- it starts with the world in a great depression, makes its way to a war that starts with biplanes and ends with atomic bombs and the era ends with the beginning of the space age. We also went from radio to color television. From the vacuum tube to the transistor. From big bands to garage bands. From mom's homemade apple pie to McDonalds pastry. From the last of the luxury trains and ships to the air pollution of 400 horsepower cars and noisy jet planes on the soon to be overcrowded highways and airways. America sure did change during this period.
