Just a "bump" on this announcement-- if your are in the Seattle area next weekend, you can take in one of the world's premier Air museums, and catch a model show at the same time! You can see everything from a B-17 to a Dreamliner, WWI and II aircraft fully restored, as well as aircraft from the dawn of aviation to the Space Age. Join us this next weekend-- if you're a modeler in the local area, you can bring and display your work as well-- all types of models are represented.
The Seattle Museum of Flight (MoF) hosts the Northwest Scale Modelers (NWSM) exhibition in February every year. This year's exhibition/show is being held on February 17-18 in the Grand Gallery near the Lockheed SR-71. This is an exhibition of the model makers art, not a contest, and hundreds of models of all kinds are on display from modelers around the Puget Sound Region. The MoF has exhibits from the dawn of aviation to the 787 Dreamliner, with hundreds of actual aircraft on display, including dozens of WWI, WWII, early aviation, Golden age and Space age aircraft, all beautifully preserved and under cover. If you are in the area, it's a great opportunity to see one of North America's premier aviation museums and take in a modeling show at the same time! Here's the link:
The Museum of Flight is located South of downtown Seattle at the west side of Boeing Field, with easy access to Interstate 5 and the Seattle-Tacoma airport.
