The number of airplanes at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington increased significantly the weekend of February 18-19 as the facility hosted the annual Northwest Scale Modelers Show.
Approximately 2,500 scale models were on display at the event, which is known as the largest model show in the Northwest.
Airplanes, cars, boats, rockets, and spaceships, along with movie monsters and anime figures were on display. The display scales ranged from 1:72 to microscopic, where a dime was used to provide perspective.
Starfleet and the U.S. Navy were particularly well represented at this year’s show.
Model builder Dan Carey, who has several models already on display at the Museum assembled a model on-site and answered questions. The event is part workshop and seminar. Throughout the weekend, there were demonstrations on technique painting and detail and even on building dioramas to display the models.
