I'm a few hours away debating coming. Honest opinion on whether or not it is worth the drive and toll?

I'd say it's in the top three shows in the US.

Are there more than three in the US every year?

Detroit show is one week later. Did anyone here attend the Detroit show last year? I set up the first year and considering selling there this time. Will bring a bunch of vintage models but worried as I did not sell any models first time I set up.....( 2 years ago )

I'd like to attend the DTW show, the venue is awesome with vintage aircraft restorations. Alas the airfare to DTW is prohibitive now on the evil Widget. There was a good crowd at the show last year.

There are shows in Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, LAX, Newark, Chicago throughout the year. Annual Big Show is Airliners International 2018 in Washington DC this year.

I know there are way more than 3, was just a joke . Hoping someone shows up with the KLM 744 I am looking for.

95 Years PH-BFH City of Hongkong in 1:200. She landed over my head on Maho Beach a couple years ago, and I missed out when she was released before.

Both inflight and JC wings made it. I can find them on a couple websites in Europe but the exchange rates right now are atrocious and shipping isn't cheap either.

I'm just over an hour away from the Detroit show. Does anyone know if it will be worth the drive? I'm interested in only commercial aviation models; no miltary, nor rides, etc.... Anyone have experience attending this show? thx

From what I can remember I have in storage: Several Saab 340s, jetstreams in different liveries ( Republic, Eastern express etc ) by Space models, American Eagle Crj700 and Saab 340 from Pacmin, a Brazillia, potentially a metal Air Canada 1/50 Dc-8 in original crate by Fermo and a 5+ ft B737-300 in vintage USAir colors.
I would love to sell at the DCA show but can not spend 3-4 days at one event.....

I made the trip down from WI and had a nice time. Lots of folks and plenty of vendors. I didn't find much on my want list but I'm a 1:200 guy, it looked like there was a ton more 1:400. Plenty of vendors with good prices seemed to be finding new homes for their models. A couple tables had crazy prices, at least on the 200 stuff and didn't look to be selling too much.

Besides Airliners International and Atlanta Show, the Chicago show is awesome. Great turnout.
