Default LAX airline memorabilia Show on 1/19

Is it worth to attend the LAX airline memorabilia show which is taking place this Saturday? Are there many diecast models there? Would appreciate if someone who has been there can share their experience.

It's not really an "airline memorabilia" show - it's a diecast show, with some memorabilia sprinkled in. Deals can be found, but a lot of times the deals aren't that great. Stick around towards the end of the show (~ 3pm) when dealers don't want to haul their stuff home for a better deal.

I thought of going there very early, just when they start before all the rare models get sold.

How often do they do these kind of shows at LAX or around the So. Cal. area?

I believe it is twice a year in Los Angeles.

I plan on going Saturday. Show is usually 2 times a yr, Jan & June for sometime now. Some LA shows have real good deals and other ones seem lite. alot of Diecast models will be available, just depends on if dealer wants to price to move or not. Have found some real gems in the past. And then you can cruise up to the Hill on Imperial and watch the goings on @ LAX

I am flying there to attend the show on Saturday. I have never been there although
there have been some pics on the net showing a busy show. If you want to know
about future shows around the country go to WAHS.net, subscribe and check out
their "show" page. It's a great organization. I just received my quarterly magazine yesterday.

Assuming 1) any rare models are brought; 2) said models aren't way overpriced;

I've seen 'rare' models sit until the end of the show because they were to expensive.

Watch for creepy wheezers. The potential for a roomful of them exists.

If you really want to enjoy this hobby or any other for that matter, don't get worked up over what you hope to find. Go there with some expectations. Expect to find something you will like but not everything you want. I have been disappointed many times only because my expectations were too high. Now, I really try to just enjoy the event. Whatever I find is great and whatever I missed, that's ok also!
