Since 2006, NorthWest Scale Modelers has been privileged to collaborate with The Museum of Flight to stage model displays in the museum lobby. Each display follows a theme negotiated in advance with the museum; for example, “War Weary Makeover” was an examination of the colorful Assembly Ships used by the USAAF 8th Air Force in World War II.

NEW! Current Display – Air Racing: Wings of Thunder (pics coming soon)
