Model festival brings planes, ships, houses down to sizeMiniaturists revel in Owls Head Transportation Museum event
Owls Head — Visitors found themselves fascinated by models of everything from rockets and planes to ships and sitting rooms in miniature during the two-day Midcoast Model Festival at the Owls Head Transportation Museum April 8 and 9.
Numerous model makers filled tables with painstakingly detailed creations.
In addition to models on display, books and toys were on sale, and children could enjoy radio-controlled demonstrations and computer simulations. About 70 exhibitors participated.
Miniaturists are not to be confused with children’s dollhouse makers; miniaturists build architectural-quality scale homes and furnishings. Even the tools they use are miniature, and were displayed.
