The 2017 ValleyCon Show at the Petersen
2017 marks the second time that the annual ValleyCon scale modeling convention has been hosted at the Petersen. This show brings some of Southern California’s best model makers and their work to one location so the public can enjoy it. This year there were 639 models for visitors to admire as they walked through the museum. The theme was Sci-Fi Armor leading to a focus on space ships and mech suits to check out in addition to a truly epic 6’x6’ flying city which was built by hand to be used in a film to raise money to fight childhood cancer. With the influence of Hollywood so abundant, the model makers of Southern California are truly a cut above.
