Historical miniature gaming pairs model-making and board games. Many games will be demonstrated, including those featuring aerial combat, air racing, hydroplane racing and war games using miniature historical models, landscapes, and figurines. Visitors are encouraged to participate.

The one-day exhibition of flyable model aircraft is sponsored by the Marymoor R/C Club of Redmond, Wash., and represents the craftsmanship of dozens of Northwest model makers. Club members will be on hand to answer questions about the sport and hobby of radio controlled aircraft.
