As long as you're at the Boeing Store on Marginal Way check out The Museum of Flight gift shop down the road, they have a few more diecasts there. You don't need admission to the museum to go in.

Also visit Randy's Restaurant on that same street - test pilots (including some famous ones), military aces, The Blue Angels, and even Spielberg have been known to have breakfast there. It is full of model airplanes and memorabilia.

The best overall store that I know of is the Hobbytown down by SouthCenter. For just Alaska Airlines stuff the Alaska Airlines Company Store can't be beat, just down the road from Sea-Tac, the public is welcome and you can't beat the prices on the models.

There is also a Hobbytown in Lynnwood, but they only carry GJ and Skymarks. As to the Alaska store - I wasn't aware the public could buy from them. Or is that only for the Disney-themed models you have to be an employee?

+1. Did both of those in December. Randy's also has really tasty food.

I visited Flight City in Vancouver last week. Great views of runway from there too.
Nice selection of models in there at the moment. Loads of Gemini and Phoenix models plus clothing, flight gear and DVD's.

If you are also into other models and hobbies then worth popping next door to a huge model shop too.
