Static Museum Models
Examples of models that are still lifes.


The components of the Mir Space Station, here at the Huntsville space center, show how the space station goes together.

This pathetic boxed display of a British heavy bomber (Lincoln?) at the Imperial War Museum is like peering into a black hole.

An aircraft carrier model at the San Diego Aerospace Museum is well lit and displayed as if it were an artifact itself. Too bad they didn't use the opportunity to teach patrons more about real carriers.

Combined with small Chinese artifacts, this model of a Nationalist-manned Sherman at the Presidio Army Museum (now in storage) gives an impression of something that would have been too large for the case!
