NorthWest Scale Modelers Show: February 19-20!

Tim Nelson has stoped by to update us on the NWSM show.  Take it away Tim...


The NorthWest Scale Modelers Show at The Museum of Flight on February 19-20 is fast approaching!  It is an opportunity to show off your models, and promote this great hobby, to a very large audience. It’s also a chance to bask in a weekend of modeling without judging, being judged, or spending your hard-earned cash on vendor wares you really don't need anyway. 

If you never participated, why not start this year? Celebrate the hobby, enjoy the work of others, chat with your fellow modelers, and learn from an eclectic mix of seminars. This 2-day show is a pure exhibition, not a contest, so come enjoy a relaxing weekend immersed in your favorite hobby. Although the main model show is organized simply by modeler, we will have one special group display organized by Jim Bates and Neil Makar on the Vought F-8 Crusader. Eric Christianson has curated a variety of cool modeling seminars - teach, learn, discuss. There will be ample working tables for the public to see modelers in action; bring projects to work on. Museum admission is FREE all weekend to exhibiting modelers (in other words: BRING MODELS). If the urge to shop overwhelms you, our pal Emil will be hosting a NWSM Show Sale a short trip away at Skyway Model Shop. 

With a pandemic still going on, there will be some changes to the working table layout and seminar location to maximize spacing. Ongoing Museum of Flight admission screening protocols are in effect. If you received a show email over the holidays, you’ll see a detailed pre-show briefing the weekend of Feb 12. If this is news, please contact Tim Nelson (email timsan (at) or Jim Bates (rcaflawyerpilot (at) to ensure you are on the distribution list. 

See you at the show!

Jim - in different times I would be there, with my hat on! As you well know, the MoF is on the bucket list and certainly, tying a visit to the museum with a model show... that would be the ultimate.

Have a great time at the show! I am looking forward to your show report.
