If you're thinking of sending me something for x-mas, think no more: The Lovell Beach House Bank! Made from resin by Landmark Models, this model (sadly, it turns out it is not a bank, although other models are...) was, according to Landmark, "...based on meticulous research of original architectural drawings and photographs of the built structure." However, my inner Schindler-geek (and you know we're talking big-geeky here) wistfully and whispfully notes that the model doesn't reflect the original design and built structure (the windows in the front top story were added to the open patio several years later when it became clear Schindler didn't take pains to design drains large enough to drain rains [say that seven times fast...]). Landmark also has models by Wright and a Case Study house.

Thanks to the good folks at PrairieMod for the link.
