A nice day at the local model show.

A friend of mine likes to build models, who am I kidding, he likes to collect them and thinks about building them. :-)   Anyway, he works for a local hobby shop and they were selling some of their stuff at the model show that was being held at the Evergreen Aviation Museum here in Oregon.  If you get the chance to come out here you should go. It is a wonderful museum with three buildings worth of exhibits and they also have the Spruce Goose, which is amazing to see.  Also outside on the property there are tanks and other airplanes, plus there is a water park for the kids which has a 747 on the roof they can slide through.

Anyway, I took over a 100 pictures of the models but I haven't posted them all.  The work on them all was fantastic and I wish I could paint this well.  My models never seem to come out this well.

I did pick up a few items while I was there and I will do another post with those. I didn't buy much, I won a few of them in the raffles they had going on, so not too bad.

Enjoy the photos!



I love the shading and tone of this piece.




I liked this one a lot. Just so different from everything else that was there.
















The water effect on this model is superb!




The model had lights on the inside of the cockpit and lights on the outside. You can just about make out the characters in the cockpit.



















This was scratch-built!!
