I saw this model at the LA County Natural History Museum back in 2000. I assume it still exists, though I don't know if it's still on display. I was very fascinated by it and remember thinking it would've been cool if they had a same scale model of modern-day Los Angeles displayed along with it so that you could compare the two.
