    To my knowledge, there are no paper model expos in the greater Pacific Northwest. So I have created this poll to see if there are any members in the PNW (especially Oregon) who are interested in assisting me in putting together an EXPO in Oregon. If there is enough interest, I am considering having it at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, OR.

    If you have any questions, please send me a PM.

    Hey this reminds me of someone in Germany that did something at an air & space museum that also feature papercraft aircraft with kids.

    That is one of the reasons why I want others locally, to help me put this whole thing together.
    I am also looking at putting a small exhibition together for the local community center, to more introduce people to the wonderful world of paper model building, and yes, there will be activities for children as well.

    Have you thought of using some of Jan Rukr's one page models (with his permission of course) or genet? The genet models are probably easier for beginners.
