2019 Gulf Coast Model Expo

Explore the Miniature World

Join us January, 12 from 10 am - 4 pm as the Galveston Bay Area Scale Modelers Association, IPMS Houston and other area modelers showcase hundreds of detailed scale model aircraft, cars, tanks, trucks, spacecraft, ships, and figures surrounded by historic aircraft.  

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, a special display of models related to World War I will showcase the men and machines of the “War to End All Wars.”  Don’t miss “Wood & Canvas:  The World War I Aviation Art of James Dietz” in museum's temporary gallery.

A special presentation on Modeling Basics will be presented at 1:00 pm for all of those who would like to learn more about this fascinating hobby.  Want to learn about the techniques?  Have questions on paint and glue? This session will answer all these questions and more!

All modelers are welcome to participate!
