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, “Spitfire!” was a salute to the Supermarine Spitfire in its many variants, in different scales and markings.
