Marvel at minis


If you are fascinated by life in miniature, here's the show for you. "The Gathering 2003: Scale Model Summit," sponsored by IPMS/Salt Lake City, Northern Utah Scale Modelers Association and Utah Miniature Automotive Guild, will be held this weekend at Union Station, 25th Street and Wall Avenue, Ogden.

The public is invited to view model planes, cars, movie characters and more — more than 1,000 in all — from noon to 6 p.m. today and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The hall will be closed for judging from 1-4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Cost for the show is $3 for adults and $1 for children.

The gathering will also offer a Make-n-Take activity for youths ages 6-16. Model manufacturers have donated kits, and kids can learn how to build a model with the help of association members. This free event will run from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday. A maximum of 50 youths will be able to participate.
