The NorthWest Scale Modelers Annual Museum of Flight Show: Version 2018


South of Seattle is King County International Airport better known as historic Boeing Field. In addition to the Boeing company, Boeing Field is also the home of  Seattle’s Museum of Flight: an internationally renowned aviation museum.

The NorthWest Scale Modelers club (NWSM) is an informal scale-modeling organization that maintains a themed display within the museum and hosts an annual model show every Presidents Day weekend. The show is held in the beautiful center display room under the M-21/SR-71.

For the little modelers-to-be Skyway Hobby Shop  hosted a “Make and Take” on Saturday where kids received a free, easy-build kit and assistance from experienced hands if needed.

For the big modelers, seminars that covered a broad range of modeling topics were given by members of both NWSM and IPMS Seattle.

A special thanks to Tim Nelson for managing the show (again) and to all the members of NWSM, Seattle IPMS, and individual builders for sharing their work.
