Northwest's largest scale model show comes to Seattle

On Feb. 18-19 you can explore the world in miniature at the 2018 NorthWest Scale Modelers Show, the largest model exhibit in the Northwest. Nearly 2,000 detailed examples of planes, cars and spacecraft plus creations from the worlds of sci-fi and fantasy will be on display. The show offers free modeling seminars and make-and-take activities for families led by some of the world's best modelers. The event is free with admission to the Museum of Flight in Seattle.

This year's show marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 with 70 models of aircraft, tanks and soldiers from the various warring powers. There will even be examples of military planes converted into civilian airliners and sport planes after the war.  

Founded in 1965, the independent, nonprofit Museum of Flight is one of the largest air and space museums in the world, serving 600,000 visitors annually. The Museum's collection includes more than 160 historically significant airplanes and spacecraft, from the first fighter plane (1914) to today's 787 Dreamliner.
