The Chattanooga Scale Modelers Association will host their seventh annual scale model convention on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 5-6, at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center. It will be open from 2-6 p.m. on Jan. 5 for entries and then Jan. 6 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. with awards at 4 p.m.
Visitors can expect to see museum quality scale models grouped in categories such as aircraft, armor, autos, dioramas, figures, science fiction and ships. A miscellaneous category takes care of most everything else.
Specialist vendors will have booths and be selling various related kits, tools, books, supplies and accessories. In previous years 300-400 models have been displayed and 100 vendor booths set up.
The best time for the public to check out the models is from 12-4 p.m. on Jan. 6.
