Default Re: Stores in Washington, DC?

The best thing about the two Smithsonian Air and Space Museums are the extensive aircraft collections and fact that they are free - probably the only city in the country where the museums are 'free' (your taxes do support them), and the array of museums on and around the mall rival any in the world, and again, the price is right. However, you will pay $18 for parking at the Udvar Hazy Air and Space museum out at Dulles airport. There are some bargains in aircraft books, especially at the Air and Space on the mall, but the scale models and die casts are outrageous. Tupi is right - go the the usual web stores for the diecasts. Later, Doug
