On February 18th and 19th, from 10am-4:30pm, the Northwest Scale Modelers (NWSM) at the Museum of Flight will push the envelop with a massive show of modeling force and bring the Northwest hundreds and hundreds of: model aircraft, cars, tanks, ships, spacecraft and more. There will even be a special demonstration of creatures and hardware from the Star Wars series.
On February 18th at 2pm, Bob Jacobsen will demonstrate the life size working model of R2-D2 he designed and built from scratch. For all you non-Star Wars fans out there, this is a BIG THING!
Children ages 6+ are invited to participate in special ‘Make and Take’ model building workshops on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm to build a scale aircraft to take home. Workshops are 1st come-1st serve and each child should have a direct adult helper.
This looks like such a really cool event. I am such a Star Wars geek and I love the idea of introducing boys and girls to a great hobby that encourages the use of their minds and their imaginations! Get out there and have fun!
