On Saturday, my local model club, the Northwest Scale Modelers, hosted the first of what we hope will be quarterly modeling displays at the Flying Heritage Collection. Each modeler gets a table to build on and to display a few models. We spend the day BSing with each other and talking to the museum patrons. It is a nice way to spread the word about scale modeling and I even got some progress made on an Academy P-40N.
My workspace for the day. Yep, it is a rough life...
The nose of Lancaster Mk. I (FE) TW911 makes a nice display. This Lanc was built for the Tiger Force but carries the more common night bomber scheme.
One of the newest displays at the Museum is a Scud missile on its launcher.
The Spitfire had the engine off for some winter maintenance.
